Strategic Asset-Liability Management for Financial Institutions

Strategic Asset-Liability Management (ALM) can significantly improve financial performance by delivering a better balance between returns and risks across a more comprehensive set of both on- and off-balance sheet assets and liabilities.

This advanced program covers best practice in ALM as well as ALM’s role as a strategic function in financial institutions.

Beyond full coverage of the key ALM areas of interest rate, liquidity, FX and credit risks, their measurement, and best practice management; the course also integrates all key risks into a state-of-the-art constrained optimization solution for ALM, compliant with the – now clearer – suite of regulatory requirements banks face going into "Basel IV".

Practical application and strategic decision making are emphasized throughout the program via real-world case studies and workshops, which focus on international best practices and explore the experiences of a range of institutions.
