Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book
London, 22-23 February 2017

This is a multi-tutor course format aiming to address the challenges of interest rate risks arising in the banking book and delegates will learn to identify, measure and mitigate different types of risk.

The whole of the first day will look at the intricacy of IRRBB, starting with a presentation updating delegates on the final BCBS paper and what it means. Further sessions will focus on the alternative metrics involved and comparing the different approaches one can take. There will also be consideration for the challenges and problem areas within IRRBB and emphasis on what best practice looks like.

The second day will start with a case study on Interest Rate Risk from a Tier 1 bank, looking at how it is applied in the UK and the effect on its global subsidiaries. Following on, the session presented by Standard Chartered will consider IRRBB governance challenges. The final two sessions will look at how to model IRRBB and investor relations and disclosures.
