Treasury or funds management is one of the most important functions and perhaps the most complex in the bank. Treasury is the department in charge of funds management and it determines, among other things, the overall money position of the bank and in this sense is charged with the responsibility of keeping the bank liquid. Liquidity, more than profitability, ranks first in every bank executive's priority objectives as this ultimately determines a bank's continuing viability. 

This three-day module walks the participant through the mechanics of managing bank liquidity and how the department tackles the bank's profit objective by scouring the market for investment opportunities across all markets. It likewise discusses the department's linkages with the various departments of the bank in order to achieve these twin (i.e., liquidity and profitability) objectives. 


After the course, you will:

1. Gain insight on the various functions and activities of the treasury or funds management department;

2. Learn and understand how the department manages the bank's funds, its overall liquidity, and the attendant risks;

3. Learn and understand the pricing mechanics and the income opportunities of trading in fixed income securities, foreign exchange and derivatives; 

4. Understand and appreciate the interrelationships between treasury and the other departments of the bank in achieving its liquidity and profitability objectives; and

5. Identify and take advantage of profit opportunities in the yield curve, as well as control the resulting market risk.

6. Learn and understand the risks inherent in trading in fixed income securities, foreign exchange and derivatives and various strategies to mitigate and control these risks
