Instructions on Assessment:

To answer the questions below you are required to choose one Global Systemically Important Financial Institution to provide examples.

  1. In the context of the most recent international regulatory frameworks, critically evaluate the role of the bank’s asset-liability committees (ALCOs) in measuring and managing interest rate and liquidity risk. In order to support this you are required to calculate and interpret appropriate measurement techniques.

 (1500 Words, 50 Marks)

  • Using literature and examples, compare and contrast the operational risk management performance of your chosen bank with the dynamic regulatory and banking environment over the last three years. In response, construct a fraud risk assessment framework using these examples and future potential exposures. This framework should acknowledge the current legislative and regulatory infrastructure in which your bank operates.

(1500 Words, 50 Marks)

Assessment structure guidelines are as follows:

  • Length maximum of 3000 words (with a +/- 10% tolerance level) which must be stated.
  • Font – Arial 12, whole document being fully justified with 1.5 line spacing.
  • Titles and headings should be in bold. Section headings should be numbered e.g. 3.1.
  • Quotations of more than 2 lines must be indented and in italics with the reference and page number stated. Shorter quotations should be in italics but do not need to be indented.
  • Tables and figures should be inserted at an appropriate point in the text and should be easily readable.
  • If you are attaching any appendices, please keep it to the minimum.
  • Referencing must be APA 6th  style.

Late submission of work

Where coursework is submitted without approval, after the published hand-in deadline, the following penalties will apply.

For coursework submitted up to 1 working day (24 hours) after the published hand-in deadline without approval, 10% of the total marks available for the assessment (i.e.100%) shall be deducted from the assessment mark.

For clarity: a late piece of work that would have scored 65%, 55% or 45% had it been handed in on time will be awarded 55%, 45% or 35% respectively as 10% of the total available marks will have been deducted.

The Penalty does not apply to Pass/Fail Modules, i.e. there will be no penalty for late submission if assessments on Pass/Fail are submitted up to 1 working day (24 hours) afterthe published hand-in deadline.

Coursework submitted more than 1 working day (24 hours) after the published hand-in deadline without approval will be regarded as not having been completed. A mark of zero will be awarded for the assessment and the module will be failed, irrespective of the overall module mark.

For clarity: if the original hand-in time on working day A is 12noon the 24 hour late submission allowance will end at 12noon on working day B.

These provisions apply to all assessments, including those assessed on a Pass/Fail basis.

Word limits and penalties

If the assignment is within +10% of the stated word limit no penalty will apply.

The word count is to be declared on the front page of your assignment and the assignment cover sheet.  The word count does not include:

Title and Contents pageReference listAppendicesAppropriate tables, figures and illustrations
GlossaryBibliographyQuotes from interviews and focus groups.

Please note, in text citations [e.g. (Smith, 2011)] and direct secondary quotations [e.g. “dib-dab nonsense analysis” (Smith, 2011 p.123)] are INCLUDED in the word count.

If this word count is falsified, students are reminded that under ARTA this will be regarded as academic misconduct.

If the word limit of the full assignment exceeds the +10% limit, 10% of the mark provisionally awarded to the assignment will be deducted.  For example: if the assignment is worth 70 marks but is above the word limit by more than 10%, a penalty of 7 marks will be imposed, giving a final mark of 63.

Students must retain an electronic copy of this assignment (including ALL appendices) and it must be made available within 24hours of them requesting it be submitted.

Note:   For those assessments or partial assessments based on calculation, multiple choice etc., marks will be gained on an accumulative basis.  In these cases, marks allocated to each section will be made clear.
