W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y PRISM is the CB Risk based supervisory framework, initially rolled out in May 2012 Probability Risk and Impact SysteM All 11,000 financial institutions are assessed and given an impact rating. Impact ratings are determined by following metrics: (a) Asset Size (b) Regulatory Reserves (c) number of members) 1 – What is PRISM?
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y PRISM is designed to: Adopt a consistent approach to risk Allocate resources based on impact Set level of engagement (e.g. with high impact firms) Ensure action is taken early to mitigate risk Analyse better management information about risk profiles of firms 1 – What is PRISM?
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y PRISM management information / database: Centralised all credit union data Including Prudential Returns, Annual Returns, Audited accounts + details of any reviews, assessments of credit unions Any PRISM inspection of a CU will feed into the system System sends alerts (e.g. when RRR < 10%) Alerts for follow up visits, updates etc 1 – What is PRISM?
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Firms are assessed as High Impact, Medium High Impact, Medium Low Impact and Low Impact Credit unions are ranked as follows 2 – PRISM assessment / rating of credit unions High ImpactNone Medium High20 credit unions Medium Low248 credit unions Low130 credit unions
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 2 – PRISM assessment / rating of others PRISMInsuranceBanking Ultra High14 High123 Med High2412 Med Low8218 Low14934 Total26871
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Supervisory contact is tailored for firms based on their impact category Credit unions will get different levels of attention High Impact and Medium High Impact firms - proactive supervision Low Impact - reactive supervision Most credit unions are in Medium Low category so will have a mixture of both 2 – PRISM assessment / rating of credit unions
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 2 – PRISM assessment / rating of credit unions Medium High Impact credit unions Full PRISM inspection 3-5 days, 3-5 supervisors on-site Analysis of business model, governance, finances Full inspection every 3 years Regular meetings with CB Risk Governance Panel Occasional Board Meeting attendance Checks to include analysis of board minutes, effectiveness of board
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 2 – PRISM assessment / rating of credit unions Medium Low Impact credit unions Full PRISM inspection, but less frequent given large number of credit unions. 2 days, 2 supervisors on-site Semi – automated Return analysis (alerts) Regular meetings with CB with key officers Board Meeting attendance much less likely More hands on approach for problem credit unions
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 2 – PRISM assessment / rating of credit unions Low Impact credit unions On site PRISM inspection less likely. Only when required or for problem credit unions (e.g. low RRR) Semi – automated Return analysis (alerts) Reactive supervision but breaches of Regulatory requirements will be acted upon (e.g. low RRR)
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Board Packs (last 12 months) Org chart Pen picture of board and management (qualifications, experience) Board minutes (last 3 years) Supervisory Committee minutes (last 12 months) Credit control, investment committee minutes (last 12 months) 3 - What is required by CB for a PRISM inspection?

W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Other information required Copies of Loan Book Reviews, External Reviews Investment statements Rescheduled loan reports Loan reports (loans by sector, loans by purpose, connected party loans Arrears reports (last 12 months) IT/IS reports (SLA with IT vendor, listing of personnel and vendors with special access) 3 - What is required by CB for a PRISM inspection?
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Other information required Copies of management accounts Projections and financial plans Strategic plan (3 year minimum) Risk appetite statement Note there is substantial material available from the Monitoring Dept to assist with all of the above. All available on the ILCU website 3 - What is required by CB for a PRISM inspection?
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Central Bank assess all firms under 10 risk categories. Some are more relevant for credit unions than others. Credit risk and capital risk are obvious areas of focus for credit unions with climbing arrears and reserves being depleted by loan losses Insurance risk would be a lower priority. 4 - 10 Risk Categories under PRISM
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 4 - 10 Risk Categories under PRISM Risk CategoryTypes of checks done 1- Credit RiskReview of loan arrears, provisions, stress tests 2 -Market RiskAnalysis of investments by category, review of investment policy 3 – Capital RiskReview of capital, fixed assets 4 – Operational RiskReview of compliance with AML, review of BCP
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 4 - 10 Risk Categories under PRISM Risk CategoryTypes of checks done 5- Insurance RiskReview of compliance with S47 CU Act 6 – Liquidity RiskAnalysis of adequacy of liquidity, review of liquidity policy 7 – Governance Risk Review of experience of CU personnel, review of risk management framework
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y 4 - 10 Risk Categories under PRISM Risk CategoryTypes of checks done 8- Strategic RiskReview of strategic plan, analysis of projections 9 – Environmental Risk Review of macroeconomic trends to establish potential impact on credit union 10 – Conduct RiskReview of compliance with applicable consumer protection legislation
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y CB has outlined they are taking a forward looking approach, being more proactive and expecting credit unions to be more proactive Approach is to be constructive and challenging based on analysis of all data (challenging aspect has been a problem at times) There should be open communication (has not always been the case) Supervisors will make judgement calls based on analysis to build an overall risk profile of the firm 5 - Central bank approach
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Risk appetite of CB: CB has indicated that any risk probability rated as medium high/high must be mitigated Focus on risks which, if left unmitigated, could threaten the financial future of the credit union (e.g low RRR) Wilful non compliance with an RMP action will be taken seriously 5 - Central bank approach
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Depending on category of credit union, 2-5 inspectors carry out PRISM inspection on site The CB team will then meet individually with the following : Chairman and Secretary - to discuss Governance, Risk and Compliance, high level view of credit union and the future of the credit union. This would include discussion of the strategic plan 6 How PRISM inspection is carried out
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Board and Manager - to discuss financial accounts of the credit union. This would cover financial ratios (PEARLS, RRR) returns on assets, strategic planning. Likely to go through the strategic plan and the future plans of the credit union in a lot of detail. Supervisory committee / Board Oversight Committee – to discuss their work and findings. This would include a discussion of minutes and recommendations. 6 How PRISM inspection is carried out
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Overall meeting with the collective Board, Supervisors (Board Oversight Committee), Managers - to discuss overall situation and issued covered in other meetings. The Risk Mitigation Plan (RMP) should be discussed at this point, which should highlight risk areas and set out work required to mitigate these risks. A copy of this RMP should be sent to the credit union following the inspection and meetings. In some cases there has been substantial delays in the RMPs being sent to credit unions. 6 How PRISM inspection is carried out
W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Governance Risk Limited rotation of Board, no succession plan Lack of financial expertise on board CU policies not being reviewed annually CU policies not being signed off by the board Review of policies by Supervisory committee highlighted issues and not acted upon Gap in Board oversight in relation to risk management and BCP 7 - What issues are coming up from inspections

W E L O O K A T T H I N G S D I F F E R E N T L Y Risk Mitigation Plans will be devised following inspections, and issued to credit unions. These plans will set out deadlines for remediation actions The RMP will be tracked and will form the basis of follow up by the CB Deadlines will change depending on nature of remediation actions required The RMP should be discussed at meetings with credit union personnel 8 - Outcomes - Risk Mitigation Plans (RMP)
