Liquidity Risk – A Key Prong in the Banking Supply Chain
Identifying liquidity risk takes more than a set of financial ratios – it is the most vital part of the banking supply chain. Banking as an industry remains a financial intermediary. The ability to buy funds from depositors and lend those funds to borrowers relies upon both sources of affordable funding, and a strong and healthy demand. And now due to the impacts from the coronavirus, a higher proportion of loans with lower credit ratings increases the need for more liquidity.
In this session, we will explore how an improved approach to liquidity analysis can help improve profitability and inform other asset/liability risk measures. We will highlight the risks of using historical regulatory measurements and offer a more effective framework for management, in addition to outlining a practical framework for measuring and reporting different liquidity types. Lastly, we will discuss how unplanned events might impact the liquidity position and what actions might be reasonable for management to consider.
