Prudential regulation

Ask us a question

The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) is responsible for prudential supervision in the Netherlands. This means: ensuring the soundness of financial enterprises and the stability of the financial system. For the various sub-sectors (banks, insurers, pension funds and investment institutions), requirements apply with respect to the level and calculation of solvency and liquidity, and controlled and sound operational management.

Although these prudential regulations for the various sub-sectors have many similarities in structure and outline, the specific requirements differ. These differences are related to the background and context in which the specific sub-sector operates. This course will help you understand the different prudential regulatory frameworks and their impact.

Understanding the impact of prudential regulation on the financial sector

For whom?

Banks, insurers, pension funds and investment institutions are all subject to prudential supervision. This course has therefore been developed for anyone from the first, second or third line who has to deal with the impact of prudential regulations and wants to understand its context and learn how it affects the balance sheet and profit and loss account, also in relation to other sub-sectors in the financial sector.
