    About the masterclass

    IOB is delighted to introduce the Liquidity Risk Management in Investment funds masterclass.

    View the Liquidity Risk Management in Investment Funds brochure.

    Many open-ended investment funds provide daily liquidity to their investors. Managing the fund portfolio in order to ensure that a fund is able to satisfy investor redemption requests is a fundamental obligation of fund managers. However managing fund liquidity is important for any open-ended fund, irrespective of the redemption frequency and it is equally important for all funds, both open and closed, in order to ensure that they can meet other types of liquidity related obligations, including margin calls or creditor demands of whatever nature.

    Liquidity risk management continues to be under the microscope of EU and international regulatory authorities including in light of the COVID-19 related 'March Turmoil' and the impact arising from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    The masterclass is designed to 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;

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

    Who should attend

    The masterclass 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 and all other industry professionals within fund service providers.

    Duration and Delivery

    6 hours in total to complete the masterclass. Delivery is entirely online.
