Course description

Asset & Liability Management

Post the global financial crisis, the role of the Treasury within a bank is more challenging than ever. The regulation that followed the crisis, in particular Basel III, has meant that optimisation of assets and liabilities is vital in mitigating the hit' on Return on Equity that the regulation represents.

This intensive 4-day asset and liability management workshop looks to explain the fundamental role of the ALM function and moreover via real life case studies and excel based simulations explain how the function looks to optimise balance sheet performance via the more selective deployment of balance sheet resources. In addition it will explore the fluid regulatory landscape in which ALM is functioning and outline what the industry considers as best practice in terms of dealing with the challenges that landscape presents.
