Managing Liquidity Risk in intra-day

The financial crises have changed the role and the importance of liquidity risk management in banks. The crises have showed how analysis of traditional liquidity metrics at month-end, or even at end-of-day, cannot provide sufficient and up-to-date information for decision making to meet the challenges caused by rapid daily, and intra-day changes of the market conditions.

The market conditions after the 2008 crisis put pressure on liquidity risk management. The post-crisis liquidity risk management orientates towards intra-day analysis of risk indicators to facilitate business steering of liquidity and funding in an optimal manner.

Regulatory changes (Basel III, EBA, FSA) are also steering the industry in this direction. To achieve regulatory compliance, banks will need to be able to aggregate, drill-down, forecast, simulate and stress-test liquidity risk indicators in intra-day, as part of their risk reporting procedure.
