Clients' Testimonials

The way presenter presenting Basel even someone does not have any prior knowledge to Basel can also get something from this presentation

Credit Risk Management

Fully understand that the work through is based on chronological order. I like the walk through of relevant points of HKMA SPM and sharing of relevant case studies.

Refresher on Counterparty Risk Management and HKMA requirements. Good case study sharing especially on recent cases

The contents delivered by the presenter are a very good overview and recommended for everyone to attend. Note that I have been working the Basel work for more than 15 years (even before Basel II Accord was implemented). In my opinion, the presenter is knowledgeable and the contents are correct.

Credit Risk Management

You seemed to have the power to suck up each of our best and then put it all together to create a meaningful unit for us. Your charisma and wisdom truly inspiring me and my team.
