Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book

New Dates Coming Soon for 2024

Day 1 covers the basics of IRRBB - what it is and how typically it is managed and controlled. No prior knowledge is required or assumed. Day 2 then looks at some more advanced topics including behavioural risk, what constitutes best practice in respect of internal IRRBB governance and then considers the recently announced changes to the regulatory requirements and the impact these may have on banks.

The course is designed so that delegates may opt to attend either both days or just one of the two days on a stand-alone basis. Delegates, however, considering attending only Day 2 should review the Day 1 course outline in detail to ensure that they are fully conversant with the subject matter as knowledge of this will be assumed.
