Bank Treasury departments are facing major challenges on multiple fronts, including need to meet regulatory requirements and managing the balance sheet in a truly efficient and optimised manner. Professor Choudhry highlights the main problems and presents recommendations on how a bank Treasury should respond to these challenges. Ultimately Treasury departments have to implement “Strategic ALM”, which is the most effective way a bank can optimise its balance sheet.
- Regulation: Basel III – How is Basel 3 Adopted into Legislation?
- Strategic ALM – A high-level, strategic discipline driven from the top down
- Human capital requirements – They all need to have genuine aggregate-level ALM discipline in the blood
