Brickwork Finance Academy will be conducting a session on Interest Rate Risk Management at its campus in Kalena Agrahara, Bannerghatta Road on January 18, 2014.
“Risk Management is a crucial skill set required for today’s youngsters to succeed in the BFSI sector. Interest rate risk management requires a holistic understanding of term structure of interest rates, market expectations, economic research, measuring exposure and taking calculated bets on the movement of interest rates”.
….. Vivek Kulkarni, President, Brickwork Finance Academy
Management of interest rate risks is one of the critical elements of risk management in banks today. Changes in interest rates will impact the value of a Banks’ assets and its liabilities and therefore its net interest margin. Adverse interest rate movements thus threaten any banks’ earnings and capital base.
The session aims to give participants a good understanding of various tools and techniques for measuring and managing interest rate risk using HBS case study for discussion. The appropriateness of different risk management policies and procedures would also be discussed.
The session is a part of promoting financial literacy and discussions amongst interested professionals and will be conducted by Prof. Vivek Kulkarni. The session is open to the public but requires advance registration.
