what is the ICARA course and what are the learning outcomes?

The Internal Capital Adequacy Risk Assessment Process (ICARA) self-study course has been developed by SALVUS Funds to equip professionals with the necessary knowledge and guidance for the preparation of the ICARA report. 

The course covers in detail the provisions of the ICARA, ICAAP and ILAAP, and analyzes the changes introduced with the Investment Firms Regulation and Directive (IFR and IFD). Within the course, the instructor provides proposed contents for the creation of the ICARA report, practical examples on how to perform a risk assessment analysis, stress the capital and liquidity levels of the firm. This self-paced course is designed to enrich the knowledge and expertise of professionals employed in Cyprus Investment Firms (CIF), Crypto-Asset Services Providers (CASP), and other CySEC regulated entities.

Professionals who undertake this course will gain competencies through practical examples to help identify areas of weakness within company policies and use their newly acquired knowledge to enhance procedural robustness, as well as be prepared if the Supervisory Review and Evaluation Process (SREP) is exercised by the regulator at any time.

The completion of this course counts towards Continuous Professional Development (CPD) annual requirements for CySEC Advanced and Basic certifications.
