RBA program - Module: Balance Sheet Management

Event Description

About this module
This module provides participants insight in how institutional investors, such as pension funds and insurers, run their balance sheets. Balance sheet management encompasses optimizing multiple strategic objectives by managing the key balance sheet risks, such as interest rate, liquidity, inflation, funding and currency risks. After completing this module, you will be able to design and evaluate balance sheet management programs, as well as understand the most important financial instruments and strategies institutional investors use in their investment practice.

Insight in balance sheet management requires a thorough understanding of the strategic objectives, constraints, the regulatory environment and future challenges of various types of institutional investors. Balance sheet objectives and risks are subsequently translated into a deeper understanding of the key risk exposures of these investors. Risks can be managed on either side of the balance sheet, with a dominant role for dynamic investment strategies and financial derivatives to alter the balance sheet’s risk profile. In this module, participants get to test their knowledge by addressing realistic balance sheet management case studies.
