Aarsh team conducted Gap Analysis of the current risk management framework of the bank with regards to the BASEL guidelines and central bank guidelines which included a whole gamut of risk management. ICAAP framework was also one of the key parts of the project and Aarsh team developed an efficient and robust ICAAP framework and document for the bank. After Aarsh’s inputs, the bank was able to steer forward and utilize latest approaches of risk modeling.
