About the program and ALM

The discipline of asset-liability management (ALM) has gone through enormous changes since the term was first coined in the late 1960s and early 1970s. From its origins as a cash flow matching technique, ALM has now instituted the use of advanced analytical techniques, quantitative finance tools as well as sophisticated pricing formulas and hedging strategies. The course brings the risk management of both sides of the balance sheet together in a unified framework.

The module focuses on the management of financial intermediaries, and aims to analyse financial risks, choose appropriate hedging strategies and monitor their implementation.

The prime objective of these lectures is to provide a) a thorough grounding in the way banks and insurance firms operate, b) the necessary theoretical knowledge and statistical tools to measure different kinds of risks, and c) a comprehensive examination of the techniques and instruments for managing those risks in the banking and insurance industry.

The lectures are highly participative and there will be practical case-studies in measuring and managing interest rate risk, FOREX exposure, market risk, as well as credit allocation and capital adequacy.

Participants who complete this training workshop will be given a certificate issued by the International Association of Financial Management’s professional body while being awarded a full status membership to the organization.

Today’s business environment is changing continuously and at a faster rate. Either we talk about new initiatives, new projects or new technologies the way we work is changing all the time. However, be it a small process change or a system-wide organizational change, people feel uneasy and intimidated, many times resisting to change. After all, the proverbial saying “the only persons who like change are babies” couldn’t be more relevant.

IFRS 9 fundamentally changes the way banks develop and use some of their credit risk models and the industry is currently running up against numerous methodological and practical issues in the preparation for compliance. Banks need to decide how they will run their projects and manage the ownership issues arising between risk and finance, as well as to what extent they can (and should) leverage their Basel models, before moving onto the methodological complexities around expected credit loss, the forward looking approach, and point in time modelling, on which an industry consensus is urgently required. Then there are the issues surrounding backtesting and validation, and ensuring you have enough of the right kind of data for your modelling projects. Surrounding all this, are the wider questions of how credit risk modelling is changing and the relationship between Basel and IFRS 9 going forward, which makes for a challenging and uncertain industry environment.
This in-house training will give participants practical demonstrations of how industry leaders are developing and implementing the models required for IFRS 9. Detailed case studies will demonstrate the most effective ways of tackling some of the practical issues around implementation such as setting up and running IFRS 9 projects, stakeholder management between the risk and finance functions, and determining the approach to take to your models. Participants will also learn how their peers are defining some of the key terms and parameters around IFRS 9, ensuring they are on the same page as other key players when it comes to the three bucket approach and lifetime expected loss. This course employs a combination of instructor-led sessions, case studies, group exercises, scenarios and discussions.

GAIN INSIGHTS INTO BEST PRACTICE STRATEGIES AND TECHNIQUES INCLUDING

• Determine what your approach to credit risk modelling should look like under IFRS 9
• Get practical examples of how forward looking and point in time methodologies should look
• Validate and backtest your IFRS 9 models effectively and overcome the data issues involved
