Treasury is one of the most important functions and perhaps the most complex in the bank. Treasury is the department in charge of funds management and it determines, among other things, the overall money position of the bank and in this sense is charged with the responsibility of keeping the bank liquid. Aside from this, Treasury is also the unit which ensures that excess funds are utilized to maximize the bank's return on equity. This is done by employing asset liability management and trading strategies to monetize views on various asset classes and by offering hedging and investment products and solutions to customers including corporations, SMEs and individuals.
This online module walks the participant through the mechanics of managing bank liquidity and profitability. It likewise discusses the department's linkages with the various departments of the bank in order to achieve these twin (i.e., liquidity and profitability) objectives. Finally, it introduces participants to the various products being handled by Treasury including Money Markets, Fixed Income, FX and Derivatives.
