Register Now

Program Description

Managing the asset/liability process, modeling for interest rate risk, and auditing model inputs and outputs are some of the most heavily scrutinized areas financial managers face at their institutions today. Knowing how to define accurate and institution-specific assumptions and category characteristics for your Interest Rate Risk reporting is vital.

FMS has the answers. Our upcoming seminar, Comprehensive IRR from Three Perspectives: Management, Modeler, and Auditor will help you define effective ALM and IRR policies, accurately populate the model, understand the assumptions (and see the consequences of bad assumptions), define rate scenarios, perform EVE/NEV IRR simulations that will provide management with valuable information, and prepare your institution for regulatory scrutiny.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their policy(s), ALM/IRR results and/or ALCO packages so that throughout the seminar, they can apply the practices presented throughout the seminar to their individual sets of inputs, assumption and outputs. Throughout this interactive program, Deborah will work with hands-on with you and your own institution’s data.

Perfectly suited for anyone responsible for the ALM and IRR processes within your institution, this two-day program will cover:
  • Regulatory requirements for model audits and validations
  • Review of the biggest IRR modeling mistakes and how to avoid them
  • Evaluation of the inputs data, assumptions, and requirements of an effective ALM modeling process
  • Production of accurate outputs
  • The characteristics of effective ALCO reporting and the incorporation of IRR results into the overall asset/liability management function
  • Back-testing
  • Stress testing and trend analyses

This course is designed for those responsible or accountable for the modeling function or auditing within their institution.
