The Handbook of ALM in Banking (2nd edition)

This new edition of The Handbook of ALM in Banking: Managing New Challenges for Interest Rates, Liquidity and the Balance Sheet provides a complete overview on good practices for asset and liability management in banking.

Since the previous edition, considerable changes have taken place in the regulatory ALM space. Both for liquidity risk as well as for interest rate risk in the banking book, regulatory demands have substantially increased concerning governance, stress testing, risk appetite framework, behavioural modelling, and organisational questions. At this point in time banks are working to implement these new regulations.

At the same time, stronger separation of retail banking activities from investment banking is being proposed. Consequently, there is greater focus on efficient allocation of financial resources and respective risk management. Asset and liability management and transfer pricing play a pivotal role in this context.

This new and updated edition expands on the previous version to take in an overview of these new regulations and their implications for the ALM area. The two most important developments in the ALM space since the last edition are arguably IRRBB and negative interest rates - both of which are covered here. The low-interest environment also imposes additional challenges on banking book management.
