Practical Implementation of Global Liquidity Standards LCR & NSFR

Practical Implementation of Global Liquidity Standards LCR & NSFR
29 - 30 APRIL 2019 Gulf Hotel Manama - Kingdom of Bahrain


Maintaining sufficient liquidity is critical to the ongoing viability of any financial institution, and liquidity risk management is one of the most important lessons learned from the latest financial Crisis.

Basel III has introduced a new global framework for liquidity regulation in addition to strengthening the existing rules for bank capital.

The liquidity framework issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) comprises the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR), which requires banks to hold sufficient high-quality liquid assets to survive a 30-day period of market stress, and the Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR), a structural metric for liquidity.

This workshop provides an overview of the reforms to the existing Liquidity Management practices and sets out the transitional arrangements introduced by the Basel Committee to implement the new liquidity standards.


On completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Understand key liquidity risk concepts and how they affect a bank’s liquidity risk profile
Explain the role of Stress Testing in Liquidity Risk Management
Present the objectives and the structure of the two liquidity standards - Liquidity Coverage Ratio
(LCR) and Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR)
