Asset and liability management has undoubtedly become one of the most crucial disciplines for any Bank to master. A comprehensive understanding will result in increased profitability and shareholder value. Moreover, subsequent prudential and regulatory responses that followed the crisis entirely renewed the way in which Asset Liability Management (ALM) is run.
In the same context, considering the current climate is loaded with regulatory and market changes, Funds Transfer Pricing (FTP) frameworks must be adapted in such a way to account for this without losing competitive edge. FTP serves as the linkage between product design and ALM.
This workshop provides the perfect balance between theory and practice, focusing on all the key methodologies employed within ALM as a discipline. It will provide a practical insight into industry standard techniques and topical regulatory issuesin line with the international best practices in general, aiming at boosting local foreign currency deposits and its reserves and strengthening profitability and capitalization of Banks.
The present workshop will provide Banks and regulators with a platform to learn from practical examples of how others are already incorporating the liquidity and capital regulations into their FTP models and within their ALM strategy as well as insight into future developments. The workshop is of great value to risk management and financial management teams, risk supervision teams and banking professionals seeking an interactive and simulations-based workshop to gain broader exposure to international best practices in ALM and FTP.
On completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Learn the concept of dynamic modeling of income statements and balance sheet, understand the key variables to model;
Learn how to assess the strengths and weaknesses in your current ALM process;
Gain understanding of the impact of Basel III, IRRBB and IFRS on ALM decision making;
Create scenarios and conduct stress testing for Asset Liability Management;
Master the way of adjusting the balance sheet to reduce exposure to liquidity risk and interest rate risk and commercial products;
Calculate FTP and profitability on the capital of a transaction under Basel II and III;
Conduct methodological reconciliation of static and dynamic gaps;
Evaluate different methods, challenges and applications of FTP;
Learn how Funds Transfer Pricing plays a key role in modern bank performance measurement, capital allocation and balance sheet management.
