Examinations During the Pandemic

By John Byrne | July 6, 2020
No Deja Vu[1] Examiners will consider the unique, evolving, and potentially long-term nature of the issues confronting institutions and exercise appropriate flexibility in their supervisory response. Stresses caused by COVID-19 can adversely impact an institution’s financial condition and operational capabilities, even when institution management has appropriate governance and risk management systems in place to identify, monitor, and control risk.[2] We are all guilty of saying something along the lines of “wow, this has never happened before” and occasionally we are right. Next year will be twenty years since 9/11, a direct attack on the US; now we have this pandemic which is the first event of such magnitude since 1918. So, for 90% of us, this has never happened before. As such, all responses are new and there are no parallels.

The Italian Renaissance saw the birth of an elite group of patrons revered for their intellect and dedication to the world of art. This group became the first true dealers in arts and antiquities, collecting and reselling masterpieces of former centuries and mentoring such artists as Masaccio and Giotto. However, over the centuries, the proud and historic nature of this seemingly private institution of dealers has been infiltrated by a group less inspired by the bright colors in the works of Henri Matisse or the perceptive work of Claude Monet, who instead have created a mantra out of the Andy Warhol saying: “Making money is art.”
