Contenu du cours

This course is designed to introduce students to the monitoring and management of liquidity risk. Liquidity is first introduced by differentiating market liquidity from funding liquidity. International standards and academic literature in the field are then discussed. Bloomberg/Thomson Reuters EIKON, Excel, and Eviews are used to build a framework for monitoring liquidity risk in real time. The techniques presented during the course make extensive use of the Bloomberg/Thomson Reuters EIKON terminals and of their interface with Microsoft Excel.
