Book your training today to Reserve the date

Introduction:

Strategic Asset-Liability Management (ALM) can significantly improve financial performance by delivering a better balance between returns and risks across a more comprehensive set of both on- and off-balance sheet assets and liabilities.
This advanced program covers best practices in ALM as well as ALM’s role as a strategic function in financial institutions. Beyond full coverage of the key ALM areas of interest rate, liquidity, FX and credit risks, their measurement and best practice management; the course also integrates all key risks into a state-of-the-art constrained optimization solution for ALM, compliant with the – now clearer – suite of regulatory requirements banks face going into “Basel IV”.
Practical application and strategic decision making are emphasized throughout the program via real-world case studies and workshops, which focus on international best practices and explore the experiences of a range of institutions.

Objectives

After attending this course delegates will be able to:

  • Explain the impact of the regulation on the bank’s balance sheet, in particular, the resources of capital and liquidity and appreciate how the industry is looking to mitigate this impact

  • Apply best practice to their own Individual Adequacy Assessment Processes for Capital and Liquidity and better harmonize these
  • Identify ways in which the wider business can support the ALM function in dealing with these challenges via, for example, communication and alignment of business incentivization
