Asset Liability Management

Managing liquidity and margins

In an environment of uncertain economic outlook, rising interest rate-risks and balance sheet complexity, and rising regulatory scrutiny, effective asset-liability management is vital.

Financial institutions are seeking to develop and implement forward-thinking strategies based on an assessment of the current balance sheet. Each institution has a distinct balance sheet and interest-rate risk profile, requiring its unique strategies to meet management objectives.

Funds transfer pricing (FTP) underpins the interest margin and profitability results, and thus, has a significant impact on business unit performance measurement and business behavior.

Lessons from the global financial crisis

Recent years have served to highlight the perils of an oversimplified one-size-fits-all strategy formation process to balance-sheet management.

Timely implementation is essential.

Changes in the market or in economic conditions can quickly turn a once compelling strategy into one that is ineffective and may even be counterproductive.
