Bank regulators continue to give A/L management a high priority, with emphasis on management of market risk, liquidity risk, and credit risk. Asset/liability managers are challenged to keep pace with industry changes as new areas of risk are identified and new tools and models are developed to help measure and manage risk. You and your staff can make better A/L management decisions if you have the basics down cold. Your staff needs the best possible training in this area, and self-paced training has been proven to help users learn and retain more information.
More bankers use the Sheshunoff Self-Paced Asset/Liability Training and Certification for both professional development and as an ongoing reference than any other book in bank finance. It covers all aspects of A/L management in a format that ensures the trainees will really understand each step before moving on to the next one. Chapter reviews and self-tests help to reinforce the learning process as they go, and when they’re finished, they can take an optional final test. The test is conducted in the bank and mailed back to Sheshunoff for grading. A passing mark of 75% or better earns the participant a certificate verifying that he or she has successfully completed the course. The course is designed so that any member of your staff, regardless of experience level, can use it. Plus, we offer suggestions to make A/L policies and committees more effective. The training covers all the key aspects of A/L management:
