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:
