Course Description

Funds Transfer Pricing Training

Funds Transfer Pricing - 2 day Course in London

This course is designed to investigate the pressure added by the Basel III regulations to the banks which are aimed at maintaining a buffer that enables fund transfer price (FTP) to be adjusted to the credit risk of specific assets.

FTP is a regulatory requirement and tool used in the management of firms' balance sheet structure that takes into account liquidity risk, maturity transformation and interest rate risk. Due to increased costs of funding and illiquidity, firms have had to reassess transfer pricing policies in recent years, and regulators expect a precise assessment of costs, benefits and risks. These assessments are required to be added into all of the product pricing, performance measurement and approval process of all new products. This course will give participants an ideal platform for discussion and learning how to apply the processes of FTP to business functions.
