Behind the Balance Sheet Part 2: Integrated Balance Sheet Management in the Current Banking Climate

Welcome back for the conclusion of this special two-part podcast series featuring Dr. Donald van Deventer, Managing Director--Risk Research and Quantitative Solutions at SAS, and Professor Robert Jarrow of Cornell University’s SC Johnson College of Business. We continue the discussion of the current banking climate as it relates to integrated balance sheet management — and specifically asset and liability management (ALM).

Part two of this series will tackle the following topics:

  • A further exploration of non-maturity demand deposit runoff
  • Deeper understanding of the estimated default probabilities for a bank that funds investments in Treasury securities with deposits
  • Examples of how those default probabilities vary by maturity and the bank's initial capital position
  • Tangible actions for aligning your balance sheet and optimizing your risk profile 


Keep in the know by registering for our webcast Fresh Insights for Financial Services: Analytics Modernization and Next-Gen ALM.
