Today’s FNA Talk is dedicated to one of most important topics for the banking sector – with FNA’s President Phillip Straley, and Jesse Drennan, Senior Vice President at HSBC discussing key developments in the area of intraday liquidity management.
Active management of intraday liquidity in banks has become much more critical over the decade plus since this 2008 crisis. Regulators have substantially increased expectations both on liquidity levels and with respect to banks’ capabilities for measurement, monitoring & management of intraday liquidity. At the same time, the market has changed substantially. Challenger banks and challenger FMIs (including new forms of payment and settlement mechanisms) are placing new competitive demands on large international banks at the same time as they open up new market opportunities for these banks. Likewise – new technologies for liquidity monitoring, active liquidity management and advanced analytics are opening up new avenues for banks to take better advantage of these market opportunities.
