The Importance of a Good Treasury and ALM Function

7 mins 57 secs

Overview

Treasury and Asset & Liability Management (ALM) takes place in all banks and similar financial firms. The scale and complexity will differ depending on the size and structure of the bank as well as the market in which it operates. However, fundamentally the activity is similar. What can differ greatly is the effectiveness of this work. Being good at Treasury & ALM in a bank is about much more than technical knowledge, experience and expertise. In this first of two videos, we look to provide context into why effective ALM is important before looking at specifically what it is and how to achieve it in the second video.

Key learning objectives:

  • What is bank ALM?

  • What happens if a bank is not good at Treasury & ALM?

  • What influence does the current market and regulatory environment bring to bear?
