  •    ASSET & LIABILITY MANAGEMENT

       (ALM) - AN INTRODUCTION

    Overview

    This course is an introduction to the increasingly complex world of asset and liability management (ALM). ALM is the process of controlling some of the many risks faced by financial institutions, particularly commercial banks. As such, the performance of the ALM function is fundamental to a bank's ability to thrive in different economic environments. A well-run ALM operation improves the reputation of an organization and should identify profitable opportunities with a balanced division of risk and reward. This course looks at the risks that need to be monitored by the ALM function and how the function is set up.

  •    ASSET & LIABILITY MANAGEMENT

       (ALM) - INTEREST RATE RISK

    Overview

    This course looks at the ever-increasing problems faced by asset liability managers in managing the interest rate risk associated with banking portfolios. The course outlines the shortfalls of traditional analysis, and shows how the focus should be on the values of a balance sheet as a whole, rather than simply immediate earnings. A whole set of different tools are required to deal with the complexities and inherent options of a large balance sheet; use of the concepts of duration and convexity allow a deeper understanding of inherent risks. These risks can often be effectively managed through executing appropriate transactions in the derivatives markets.

  •    ASSET & LIABILITY MANAGEMENT

       (ALM) - OPTIONS, FTP, & FIRM VALUE

    Overview

    The ALM function is about enhancing value, not merely preserving it. This course addresses a particularly tricky form of market risk in the form of optionality, as well as examining ways in which the central role of the ALM function allows it to efficiently undertake tasks affecting the entire value of an institution. The course begins by examining the implications of optionality for a banking portfolio, and then addresses the firm-wide issues of FTP and the risk monitoring of a bank's value.
