Liquidity Risk - Key Considerations for All Risk Managers


Date: Wednesday, January 10th 2018

Location: PricewaterhouseCoopers, 300 Madison Avenue, Auditorium, New York, NY

Time: Registration & Cocktails 5:30 PM – Program Start 6:15 PM 



Please join us on Wednesday, January 10th for a discussion on liquidity risk. Recent regulatory expectations and pronouncements have focused on the oversight of liquidity risk.  A clear delineation between the first and second lines of defense regarding liquidity risk  is being established at many financial institutions.  A governance path for the management of liquidity risk is now being created. 

The following questions will be addressed:
  • What is Liquidity Risk and how is it identified, measured and managed? 
  • How should liquidity risk measurement considerations be incorporated into core risk management elements such as risk identification, new product approval, business acceptance and  credit risk appetite?
  • How are firms optimizing between capital adequacy measures and liquidity considerations? 
  • How are liquidity considerations being incorporated into the valuation of collateral as it relates to scenario analysis and stress testing?
  • How does our understanding of the dynamics of market liquidity help to shape our measurement of risk and our strategic planning and decision making in actual market dislocations?
