ICAAP Models, ALM, Interest Rate Simulations for ICAAP, Langkawi

4 mins read

This advanced ICAAP modules workshop focuses on issues related to modelling using Interest Rate simulations, Interest Rate Mismatch and Liquidity Risk for Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment.

Starting with a balance sheet model, we quickly introduce tools and traditional models including gap analysis and earnings at risk, stress testing, scenario planning, policy making and simulations, followed by structured analysis required for ICAAP submissions, reporting and recommendations.

We will:

a)    Introduce the framework of ALM target accounts for ALCO, Liquidity, Capital Adequacy and risk reporting purposes

b)    Link the same target accounts with interest rate models

c)     Run the BancOne case to walk through how (a) and (b) work together

d)    Run the Live Kill the Bank simulation to see how decisions around Interest Rate Mismatch, Asset Allocation, Liquidity and Funding pan out over the next 12 months in stable, volatile, upward sloping and downward sloping interest rate environments.

The idea behind the live simulations is to help senior members of the ALCO, Treasury and Risk teams realize the impact of their decisions and choices in real time. Strategies reviewed and discussed during the live simulation include:

a)    Extending Gaps in stable rate environments

b)    Asset choices between treasury paper and commercial assets

c)     Managing Capital Adequacy and Bank P&L

d)    Tracking Liquidity and P&L

Finally the Kill the Bank simulation takes participants through the cycle of running out of capital using only interest rate risk as a tool and then rebuilding the bank and profitability using only Interest Rate Mismatch as a tool.
(All simulations are run on a proprietary Alchemy ALM Model that simulates interest rates, credit defaults, P&L, Balance Sheet, Liquidity and ALM Target Accounts).

ICAAP Models Workshop Learning objectives

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the capital charge calculation basis for capturing Interest Rate Mismatch Risk for ICAAP.
  2. Work with the primary tools required to measure and manage ALM risk profile of a financial institution.
  3. Measure liquidity and quantify the effectiveness of traditional measurement tools.
  4. Use scenario based methods, stress testing and simulations to highlight ALM and liquidity risk profile for ICAAP.
  5. Develop assumptions for testing Maturity mismatch and liquidity risk for Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment.
