About the course

Be equipped to participate in the functioning and sustainability of existing FTP mechanisms

Funds Transfer Pricing [FTP] is critical to banks internal management of liquidity and market risk. Whilst regulators do not specify what FTP mechanism a bank should operate they do require it to be effective in ensuring that asset pricing includes an accurate reflection of funding costs. For a FTP mechanism to be successful, it requires the effective partnering of treasury, wider finance and the front line business.

This intensive workshop will utilise practical case studies to better equip delegates with an understanding of how FTP mechanisms have and are evolving, what is currently considered by the banking industry to be best practice in terms of their design and operation and strategies for overcoming challenges to them.

By attending this course, delegates will be better equipped to participate in the functioning of existing FTP mechanisms, advise stakeholders on their suitability and opine on enhancements to better meet current and future challenges.

Learning outcomes:

  • Articulate the role of FTP within a bank and the regulatory requirements for it

  • Identify suitable basis adjustments to internally manage interest rate risk introduced by the funding model
  • Combine FTP curves with behavioural models to better value non maturing assets/liabilities
  • Adjust to FTP models to reflect regulatory impact such as LCR and Leverage ratio
  • Evolve existing FTP models to include Capital as well as Liquidity Funding costs and regulatory impact
  • Advise on enhanced portfolio analytics and opine on how alignment of business incentives are critical to the FTP mechanism’s success
