Increasing regulatory scrutiny around banks’ capital requirements practices continues to generate interest—and debate—across a broad swath of the banking industry. Wolters Kluwer today announced that Chris Maclin, vice president and general manager of the company’s Finance, Risk and Reporting division, will speak on these issues at the 2016 Association for Management Information in Financial Services (AMIfs) Annual Profitability, Performance and Risk Conference being held April 27-29 in Phoenix, Ariz.
On Wednesday, April 27, Maclin explores “Building Efficiencies through Stress Testing: Bridging ALM, Stress Testing and FTP” from 2:15-3:15 p.m. During his presentation, Maclin will highlight the key best practices and pitfalls in the constantly evolving world of bank stress testing. Later that day, from 4:45-5:45 p.m., Maclin will moderate a panel discussion on “Regulatory Hot Topics: How is Your Bank Handling it?” In addition to Maclin, the panel will consist of banking representatives with direct experience in managing DFAST (Dodd-Frank Act Stress Testing), pre-DFAST, and Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) requirements.
“One of the biggest challenges in the financial services industry right now is finding ways to grow safely and profitably amidst increasing regulation and economic instability,” said Maclin. “Wolters Kluwer’s participation at this conference demonstrates our commitment to helping financial institutions achieve their growth and development goals by applying integrated and consistent capital management techniques and methodologies.”
Having joined Wolters Kluwer Financial Services in 2013, Maclin is a vice president and general manager responsible for Finance, Risk and Reporting and works collaboratively with institutions of all sizes. Drawing on his more than 15 years’ experience in data management, credit risk, asset and liability management, stress testing and regulatory reporting, Maclin advises clients on innovative ways to leverage technology to match their processes to industry best practices in both risk and finance.
