    Asset Liability Management

    DS - Asset and Liability Management is developed and supported by Digital Systems, business intelligence software producer.
    The basic objective of asset and liability management is to minimize the volatility of profits generated by "core" business of the bank. The aim is to achieve a basic objective through managing the structure of the balance sheet to have the optimum yield in a defined risk profile and to minimize the impact of the market environment on the bank's income.

    DS - Asset and Liability Management focus on interest rate risk and liquidity risk because they represent the most prominent risks affecting the organization balance sheet (as they require coordination between assets and liabilities).

    The scope of the ALM function to a larger extent covers the following processes:
    1. Liquidity risk
    2. Interest rate risk
    3. Currency risk management
    4. Funding and capital management
    5. Profit planning and growth
    In addition, ALM deals with aspects related to credit risk as this function is also to manage the impact of the entire credit portfolio (including cash, investments, and loans) on the balance sheet.

    The funds transfer pricing system has become a fundamental ALM tool in a bank. It creates the ability to immunize business units from risk and provides the basis for economic and product transparency.

    The process of FTP is designed to identify interest margins and remove interest rate and funding or liquidity risk. Looking at it from the business unit perspective, it effectively locks in the margin on loans and deposits by assigning a transfer rate that reflects the reprising and cash flow profile of each balance sheet item – it is applied to both assets and liabilities. From the ALM unit’s perspective, it isolates business performance into discrete portfolios that can be assigned individualized metrics and facilitates the centralization and management of interest rate mismatches. A by-product is that it effectively allocates responsibilities between the organizational business units and the treasury department.
    The management of liquidity, interest rate risk and FTP curve is the responsibility of Assets and Liabilities Committee (ALCO).
