Riskworx Academy presented a Strategic Balance Sheet Management Masterclass
In December 2021, the Riskworx Academy presented a Strategic Balance Sheet Management Masterclass to delegates from banks all over Africa.
The audience were all experienced Treasury, ALM or Balance Sheet Managers who wished to deepen their understanding of Balance Sheet Optimisation.
A particular focus area of the training was the investigation of the nuances of this dynamic field from the perspective of an African bank. Various case studies and scenarios were employed to highlight the oftentimes extraordinary liquidity constraints, high interest rates, high credit default rates, stringent capital and regulatory requirements typically encountered in real-life.
Facilitated by Illse Nell, an experienced subject matter expert with more than two decades of experience in ALM, the attendees were guided through various exercises around the application and interpretation of various risk metrics to achieve a hands-on action learning experience.
The focus on practical application is an integral component of all the Riskworx Academy’s offerings and attendees were able to collaborate in teams over vast geographic distances thanks to a combination of the MS Teams platform and the SimArch cloud based GuardB@nk Banking Simulation software for which the Academy has an exclusive license across the African continent.
