Fund Transfer Pricing plays a key role in steering multiple strategic processes of the bank, such as performance measurement, risk allocation, external pricing and even asset liability management itself. A sound FTP model allows the allocation of financial costs and revenues to different risk taking centres, enabling each organisational unit to evaluate its profitability and take responsibility for its own risks.

In this Webinar, Dr. Engelbert Plassmaan (Commerzbank) talks about:

  1. Distinguishing between Interest-FTP and Liquidity-FTP
  2. Liquidity FTP vs Liquidity Risk Management
  3. Building an infrastructure for integrated liquidity risk management

Hosted by  Elisa Galassi (Prometeia) - She addresses key questions:

  1.  how FTP systems can be enhanced to integrate market, credit and liquidity risk in one holistic framework
  2. how a new generation of FTP systems can effectively support the active management of Treasury portfolio
  3. how the FTP can be leveraged in order to implement a risk-adjusted pricing process for customer lending
