Treasury risks typically include market risk in the banking book, counterparty credit, funding and liquidity risk. For all of these, a risk appetite has to be defined. Supervisory institutions have issued requirements regarding risk appetite frameworks. However, in addition to defining terms, limits and governance issues, financial institutions should think about operationalizing risk appetite. With respect to liquidity risk management we will deep-dive into real-live challenges when sizing limits and buffers. Recently, legal entities have become relevant to banks – a second deep-dive will analyze their impact on risk appetite and liquidity management.
