Interest Rate Risk Management in Banking Books

The Basel Committee of Banking Supervision (BCBS) published in April 2016 the final Standards for interest rate risk management in banking books. These standards are part of the Capital Framework´s Pillar 2 (Supervisory Review Process) and lay out the regulatory standards for banks to identify, measure, monitor and control IRRBB. Banks are expected to be fully compliant with these standards by 2018.

In this two-day course, we address the challenges imposed by the new recommendations and examine their impact on internal banking book risk management and reporting procedures.

The programme focuses on the two main classes of risk measure used in IRRBB - economic value of equity and net interest income - linking them to capital management practices and regulatory capital allocation demands (Basel III).

Case studies draw on international best practices in applying risk measures. Particular attention is dedicated to the construction of relevant stress scenarios and the construction of compliant behavioural models under shock and stress regimes.
