IOB New Masterclass - Liquidity Risk Management in Investment Funds

Funds by IOB are delighted to announce a new masterclass - Liquidity Risk Management in Investment Funds. This online live masterclass will be delivered over three consecutive mornings, from 8:30am to 10.30am between 9-11 July.

Liquidity risk management for funds has been under the microscope of EU and international regulatory authorities for some time, particularly in light of the impacts of COVID-19, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the US banking crisis, the LDI-related crisis, and the failure of Credit Suisse. That focus by authorities is leading to additional regulatory requirements impacting funds and asset managers.

The masterclass presenters will include representatives from ESMA and the Central Bank of Ireland, with practical insights on how liquidity risk management is applied from Alastair Sewell of Aviva Investors and Colm McDonagh, Insight Europe, Chair of Irish Funds.

It will be particularly relevant to:

  • directors, senior managers, designated persons and other staff within fund management companies (i.e. UCITS ManCos and AIFMs); 

  • directors and designated persons of self-managed funds;

  • all other industry professionals within fund service providers and advisory firms.

The masterclass will provide participants with:

  • an understanding of liquidity risk and liquidity risk management in the context of investment funds; 

  • an understanding of the regulatory framework and issues considered by macro-prudential authorities; and 

  • a practical insight into the operation of a liquidity risk management system and the challenges encountered.
