ALMA is delighted to announce that the highly-regarded Foundations of Bank ALM course is going online! The course will run on 2-6 November 2020, in the afternoons, from 1.30-5pm. It will be led by Patricia White, supported by a range of practitioner speakers. More than ever, Treasury and ALM have key roles in steering firms’ balance sheets through the financial consequences of the pandemic. This course will introduce the key concepts of capital, liquidity and interest-rate risk management, and their link to financial performance. The course is ideally suited to people from Treasury, ALM, Audit, Risk, Finance, Strategy, IT and other related teams, who wish to broaden their understanding of ALM concepts and grasp the “bigger picture”. The course also forms the perfect springboard for those wishing to go on to take the Certificate in Bank ALM (CertBALM®) qualification.
