Treasury risk management course

1 December 2022

This will be a face-to-face course at the BSA offices in London.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with an overview of the financial and balance sheet risks a building society faces as a consequence of being a mortgage lender and how these risks are managed by the treasury function.

We will consider key risks such as liquidity risk, credit risk, market risk and interest rate risk within the new regulatory framework, and examine the role of board governance and the relevant committees, focusing on the Asset and Liabilities Committee. Additionally, we will discuss 'best in class' management information and how to read and understand key reports.

Who should attend?
The course will help those with some treasury experience, who need to improve their grasp of treasury risk – including NEDs and senior management, as well as recent starters in treasury, and other staff who need to upskill in treasury. The course may be particularly useful for staff with some “second line” responsibility over treasury or balance sheet management who need to refresh, update and extend their technical knowledge.
