Bank regulators worldwide will be implementing the Basel III requirements from 2015 onwards. This includes an enhanced liquidity risk reporting regime, spearheaded by the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) and Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR) liquidity risk metrics. Meeting LCR is not simply a question of calculating the ratios, it also presents challenges in understanding the nature of the bank's liability structure, confirming a rationale behind stress test outflow assumptions at individual product level and integrating LCR-related liquidity risk appetite with customer liability strategy. In this Knowledge Group live webcast, a distinguished professional and recognised expert on bank liquidity risk management will help you understand the most critical issues which will include:
• Overview of the fundamentals
• Understanding liabilities behaviour
• The liquidity risk appetite and determining an "optimum" LCR
• Integrating liquidity risk and customer liability strategy
• Addressing NSFR and the bank's long-term funding challenge
• Strategic ALM: best-practice integrated asset-liability approach to liquidity risk
• Live interactive Q&A session
This live webcast will provide banking professionals including bank Treasury, Risk and Finance practitioners with a comprehensive overview of Basel III liquidity regime compliance. Attending this course will give you the understanding to address your bank's needs with respect to LCR.
