Liquidity Management


This ten lessons training focuses instead on those common principles of liquidity management that are independent of the particular operating conditions and supervisory regulations that an individual financial institution might face. The main objective of the training is to provide the conceptual tools that enable the reader to develop an individualized action plan for improving liquidity practices in his or her own institution. The training is divided into 10 lessons. Lessons 1 - 4 form a basic course and cover the most essential elements of liquidity management including forecasting the cumulative cash position. Lessons 5 – 7 provide the material for an extended course of study, covering such topics as vault cash planning and methods of active liquidity planning. Lessons 8 – 10 cover advanced topics such as managing liquidity in multiple currencies and integrating liquidity into risk management. Each lesson is clearly set out with learning objectives, a pre-test, questions and exercises and a final multiple choice test. There is also a study guide as an Excel workbook which provides a practical tool for implementing the liquidity methodology introduced in the text.
