About Silvano Stagni
After a long career as Change Director and Strategist for major financial institutions Silvano Stagni decided it was time to focus on regulatory change – whether researching, writing or consulting.
His experience in bridging communication gaps between stakeholders is the basis of his style emphasising practical examples and pragmatic implementation scenarios (in other words, what does it mean and how does it work?). He has written extensively on the impact of new banking regulations (Basel I - III, MiFID I - II, EMiR, Dodd-Frank, ICB, etc.), cross-border banking and finance in the developing world.
Silvano has advised financial institutions on the impact of regulation on their business processes and their IT support. He has contributed white papers to regulators in Asia and Europe for regulatory and monetary issues surrounding electronic currency and other non-monetary types of payments. He has published several articles in both online and printed magazines.

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.
