Program Description

Asset Liability Management is typically considered an interest rate risk exercise. But what about interest rate reward? When it comes to balance sheet management, having the right framework can make difficult decisions easier. One of the most difficult tasks for a financial decision-maker is comparing the risks versus rewards of unlike balance sheet cash flows. In this session, Thom will examine the definition of ALM and study the common metrics used in asset liability models the after discussing the pros and cons of those metrics, he will demonstrate how changing balance sheet composition can dramatically alter an institution’s profile. By the session’s end you’ll have a new understanding of how ALM can not only solve for compliance needs, but provide framework for strategic decision making, ultimately leading to more profitable institutions.

All proceeds from this FMS Chicago Chapter event will be donated to a to be determined local charity in the Chicagoland area.
