The Asset and Liability Management Association Limited
The company currently has participants from over 60 UK, Irish and international institutions. It continues to expand further into Europe with well developed links with AFGAP, a similar body in France.
The company’s primary aim is to provide education and promote awareness of asset and liability risk management issues. It does this through a series of courses, conferences and evening events. At these fora the Company seeks to promote and share best practice in related risk management techniques and approaches. The company provides a deliberately informal forum in which risk management professionals can network and discuss the issues facing the industry and their responses to these challenges. The company (and before it the Association) has fostered a culture of candour and openness to share views on areas as diverse as risk systems strategy, structuring of balance sheets to manage liquidity, credit and capital, experience in e-commerce and strategic business direction.
