Balance Sheet Management (ALM) in an unpredictable future
The online “BALANCE SHEET MANAGEMENT TRAINING PROGRAM”, designed by ICAP Training Solutions, is used by banks in the training of their personnel. With the use of an online ALM Simulation Program, we’ve turned this training program into an intensive and practical learning experience. The workshop provides participants with a solid understanding and overview of the Asset & Liability Management (ALM) function and processes within a full-services bank.
In this highly interactive training program participants explore the key challenges banks face today in the optimization of the balance sheet of a bank. Due to uncertain business conditions, escalating regulations and changing business models for banks, Balance Sheet Management has moved to the forefront of the financial landscape. During the program the key aspects of Balance Sheet Management are covered with a particular focus on Capital Management as well as the new “Global Liquidity Standard”. Where appropriate the implications of Basel lll and Basel IV are discussed and analysed.
The workshop combines theoretical training describing and explaining many of the specific ALM concepts involved with a hands-on application via an internet based simulator. This simulator is one of the most advanced and comprehensive available anywhere in the world and has been used by a large number of internationally renowned banks. The ALM simulation program used is called GuardB@nk 3 which depicts a full-services bank operating within a competitive environment.
Basic knowledge in risk management, control and statistics is required.
