Event description:

OVERVIEW This 90-minute webinar provides an overview of ALM principles and ALM measurement techniques. It focuses on auditor issues and procedures related to the audit of the ALM function. It covers important ALM topics such as: • Liability sensitivity • Monitoring the mismatch of maturing interest sensitive assets and maturing interest sensitive liabilities • Knowing management’s view of the future direction of interest rates • Reviewing strategies used to react to expected changes in interest rates • Understanding “immunity” • Understanding “position management” • Managing the “gap” The webinar reviews and discusses interest rate risk as well as net gap analysis. It emphasizes the importance of valuing the assets and liabilities at current market prices (fair value approach), as well as the importance of hedging fair value positions. It also discusses the composition of the ALM committee and the decisions expected of that high level committee. Attention is focused on ALM committee approaches to interest rate risk management such as: • Net interest income analysis (NII) • Net present value analysis (NPV) Attendees review examples to help them learn about simulation models, particularly dynamic simulation. It also explains the use of “duration” analysis. Specific auditor issues are addressed, outlining an ALM audit approach that includes: • Reviewing the ALM policy • Verifying the numbers used by the ALM committee to make decisions • Making a real commitment about the future direction of interest rates and how to react to rate changes • Comparing actual results to expected results A special part of the coverage includes a review of controls for derivatives.
