Why You Should Attend

Advancing your ALM Framework and Leveraging Funds Transfer Pricing

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set up for the delivery of our courses. Please note we therefore have a limited number of spaces available and these will be assigned on a first come, first accepted basis. We recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.

How you will benefit

The cumulative impact of the multiple regulatory requirements on liquidity, interest rate risk and capital management demand that banks and other financial institutions take a proactive approach in terms of balance sheet and risk management. The challenges in implementing an effective ALM framework are many, requiring financial institutions to integrate IRR, Liquidity and Financial Planning (i.e. capital allocation) with their broader risk management framework, develop risk management capabilities that are flexible, forward looking and aligned with their business / capital planning and budgeting activities. F.I.s will need to update their existing risk management framework, policies, procedures and risk management models to comply with the new regulatory expectations. Specifically, Balance Sheet and NII modelling capabilities will need to update and have significant flexibility, e.g. to accommodate ad-hoc regulatory requirements using different scenarios and/or assumptions and measuring risks across the different dimensions.

Weak practices for allocating costs and benefits associated with funding and contingent liquidity risks, and not having a clear understanding of the risk adjusted contribution from the different business lines, products and activities, has been recognized as a key contributor to the GFC and several major institution specific risk events. Given the multiple regulatory requirements and associated costs (LCR, NSFR, Leverage Ratios, etc.), compounded by a higher rate volatility environment, running an efficient FTP process to centralize the management of funding and contingent liquidity risk exposure becomes a strategic priority. An effective FTP process will align risk-taking incentives of individual business lines with the firmís risk appetite, driving volume and terms of new business and portfolio composition for an improved allocation of limited financial resources.
