The SAARC Finance seminar on “Internal Audit: Emerging Challenges and Effective Practices in Central Banks” was hosted at the National Institute of Banking and Finance (NIBAF) in Islamabad from the 27-29th March 2019 and was attended by delegates from Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. The topic of his address was: “Risk Culture and Technology Risk Management.”

On the second day, Horst also delivered a joint lecture on “The Future of Risk Management” to the seminar delegates and the participants of the international commercial banking and central banking courses at NIBAF where the group included bankers from 20 countries in Africa and Asia.

Capricorn Group is proud to play a role in the capacity building for Central Bankers in Asia.
