Strategic Asset/Liability Management Course

By: TSI Limited

USD 4,500

Venue: Kigali Rwanda

After the global financial crisis, Asset and Liability Management in banks have become more challenging than ever. The regulation that followed the crisis, in particular Basel III-IV has meant that optimization of assets and liabilities are vital in mitigating the risks confronting Return on Equity. 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. The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank has highlighted once again that banks can collapse when they pursue inappropriate asset liability management strategies. Mark-to-market losses on unhedged fixed income portfolios become realised losses if these losses trigger withdrawals, forcing asset sales, as depositors lose confidence in the bank. Uninsured deposits magnify the risk of withdrawal since the holders of those deposits are especially conscious of the bank’s financial position.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this training session, participants would be able to:

  • Organize your ALM functions efficiently
  • Measure and manage all key risks faced in ALM, including through use of derivatives and dynamically over time
  • Set appropriate incentives through funds and full transfer pricing and economic value added frameworks to strategically steer the balance sheet
  • Conduct ALM holistically, integrating all key risks, and subject to all regulatory and risk constraints, to optimize earnings and balance sheet resilience
  • Explain the impact of the regulation on bank’s balance sheet in particular the resources of capital and liquidity and how the industry is looking to mitigate this impact
  • Define the primary ALM risks aka the 3 R’s – Run off (liquidity) risk, Rollover (Funding) risk and Replacement (interest rate) risk
  • Interpret the behavioural analysis of the balance sheet to better identify liquidity, funding and interest rate risk
  • Assess Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book in line with BIS 368 Standards and have greater awareness of best practice for managing it
  • Better mitigate impact of Liquidity Coverage Ratio and Net Stable Funding Ratio
  • Apply best practice to their own Individual Adequacy Assessment Processes for Capital and Liquidity and better harmonise these
  • Better optimise wholesale and non-wholesale liquidity portfolios
  • 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 incentivisation
  • Derive and apply maturity Funds Transfer Pricing [FTP] curves, adjust for regulatory impact on liquidity and capital and have awareness of the ongoing evolution of FTP methodologies in the industry
