Treasury Risk Management
Treasury is at the heart of every banking and financing operation. Ensuring liquidity must be the top priority, as the fundamental survival of any institution depends on it. Market, interest rate, and operational risk can never be eliminated, but instead must be measured, monitored, and controlled to ensure profitability. In managing risk, treasury professionals utilise the full array of funding and hedging instruments to respond to changing balance sheet and market scenarios. Sound treasury risk management is possible only through an effective and efficient governance and policy structure, with senior management fully engaged with the Asset Liability Committee (ALCO).
By the end of this program, participants will be better able to:
- Analyse and assess the different types of risks arising from the assets and liabilities on the balance sheet
- Use and understand the basic tools to measure risk and its sensitivity to changing market conditions
- Know which funding instruments and hedging strategies are available and when to best put them into practice
- Evaluate the extent of liquidity risk exposure in a bank, via the application of a full suite of liquidity risk metrics
- Understand liquidity buffers and their management
- Appreciate liquidity risks beyond basic loans and deposits
- Evaluate the appropriate level of liquidity risk controls, with the consequences for lending;
- Grasp the formulation and value of stress tests
- Understand the concept of internal funds transfer pricing and evaluate the appropriateness of a particular model to any type of institution
- Formulate a range of funding policies for the banking and trading books
- Understand the role and influence of the Asset Liability Committee (ALCO) of a bank, and its appropriate governance framework
