Financial Planning in Uncertain Times

Boom or bust? Inflation or deflation? Expansion or contraction? Negative interest rates, Climate Risk, Global Pandemic, increased and changing regulation, and who knows what else is to come? In times when planning the future balance sheet of the bank might be especially hard, it makes sense to have an agile and transparent Asset Liability Management (ALM) System that can be used for Financial and Balance Sheet Planning. Please join Ville Holma and Niklas Fellman from MORS Software for this webinar, where Ville and Niklas will demonstrate how MORS ALM can generate financial and balance sheet projections based on different sets of assumptions.

ESG – Climate Risk management in banks

Climate Risk management in banks is a formidable challenge, supervisory timelines and expectations are stringent. Some industry experts even believe this is the single biggest challenge since Basel III was introduced. This webinar will cover how Climate Risk can drive credit, liquidity, and market risk – and how these multi-dimensional effects can be managed in MORS.

Please join this very topical Webinar, which will be hosted by:

Intraday Liquidity

This webinar will be led by Intraday Practitioner, Simon Gray, from Baringa Partners and Liquidity technology expert, Peter Serlachius, from MORS Software.

Banks and their regulators are requiring risks to be managed near real time; this includes the management and monitoring of liquidity flows and appropriate action in near real-time.  A bank’s intraday position is its first line of defence in its overall liquidity risk management (LRM). Integrating intraday seamlessly, as part of this wider LRM framework, can be a challenge; intraday is often treated as a “silo” on its own, away from wider LRM.  However data, activities, modelling, scenarios and planning need to be incorporated into the full framework to comprehensively manage risk, control liquidity and support liquidity needs in BAU and any stress periods or events.

This webinar will explore industry LRM best practices, demonstrating how intraday can be integrated to form a holistic view. What drives intraday risk? How should intraday risk support the overall LRM?  Learn how visualisation tools can support the process to analyse, explain and understand risk in a wider context and support the scenario build, simulation and planning activities including mitigating actions.

ALM Survey 2021 Results – Key Highlights

The webinar will present the key highlights from the ALM Survey Report 2021, published on 29th April. Peter Serlachius, Partner of MORS Software, and Nigel Lee, Commercial Director of MORS Software, will present invaluable insight into the effects of 2020 on the Banking Sector. 

For 10 years MORS Software has published surveys and associated reports looking into the trends and challenges in Liquidity Risk Management and Interest Rate Risk Management. Given the exceptional circumstances of 2020 we took the opportunity of launching a new report that looks holistically at trends and challenges across the broader landscape of ALM, Balance Sheet Management, Financial Planning and integrated Stress Testing.

MORS Software launched this survey during spring 2021 as a means of gaining an understanding of financial institutions globally, at a time when Treasury, Risk and Finance functions alike had been experiencing exceptional challenges.

Join this webinar to understand how banks responded to the consequences of the global pandemic and the pressure it placed on their systems and decision-making processes.

“In more than 70% of banks, the Senior Management and the Board of Directors lack the tools to support them in the limit-setting process and in understanding the consequences of their actions in the broadest context.”

The impact of the low interest rate environment on deposit repricing and risk models for banks

We will show the recent market trend in deposit repricing, including floor modelling, and discuss various market practice calibration techniques for deposit risk management models.
