On the 12th of April, Double Effect presented, in cooperation with Professor Massimo Massa (INSEAD), a strategic vision concerning the forces that will reshape the liquidity risk management function at pension funds, insurance companies and fund managers. Using Double Effect’s translation and implementation expertise, the seminar focused on the strategic and organisational consequences.
As a starting point, Elmo Olieslagers elaborated on the ILAAP Dutch Central Bank regulatory liquidity framework, which is compulsory for banks in The Netherlands. This resulted in the key question: what is required to complete the liquidity risk management function?
- Strategic vision how to organise liquidity risk management under current market circumstances
- Lessons learned from the banking environment
- Top 3 structural flaws that are to be mitigated as per today
Senior risk and investment professionals from APG, PGGM, Syntrus Achmea, BNP Paribas and ING IM participated and shared their valuable insights.
