This 2-day interactive workshop explores an essential part of Asset-Liability Management (ALM) with focus on the measurement of Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) as per the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s (BCBS) latest finalized rules (2018), which require mandatory disclosure of a specified standardized IRRBB measure.
In addition, the workshop provides a variety of methods that could be employed to measure and manage IRRBB. Relevant current Lebanese banking rules and regulations will also be presented, with an eye on how this new measure can be implemented locally along with its implications for ICAAP.
The workshop offers an in-depth explanation of the topic and is supported by practical business cases.
