Managing Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) and Balance Sheet Optimization

Welcome to our 2-day workshop on Balance Sheet Optimization, ALM, and Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) in Singapore.

Interest rate risk is a critical area of risk management in the banking industry. In 2016, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) published new guidelines and standards for interest rate risk management called “Standards on Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book”. Since then, banks have been updating their interest rate risk frameworks to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

In this workshop, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of IRRBB and balance sheet optimization. We will cover all the building blocks of IRRBB, including its measurement, management, and strategies. We will also explore the interconnections and interdependencies between IRRBB, asset-liability mismatches, and liquidity.

Furthermore, this workshop will provide you with hands-on experience in managing and optimizing the balance sheet. You will learn about the different techniques, challenges, and tools that banks employ for better management. We will use real-life examples and case studies to illustrate how to approach balance sheet optimization and interest rate risk management in the banking book.

By the end of this workshop, you will have a deeper insight into IRRBB and balance sheet optimization techniques. You will be able to make informed decisions on the design of a new IRRBB framework and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. We look forward to your participation in this exciting and informative workshop.
