Behavioural Modelling: NMDs and IRRBB

Build on your knowledge of managing and developing behavioural modelling through practical examples of NMDs and IRRBB models.

Developed in conjunction with subject-matter expert Dr Matteo Formenti around the book ‘ A guide to behavioural modelling’, this course will give participants an in-depth look into the attributes, management and development of behavioural models and their applications within ALM, FTP and liquidity risk.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore the roles and functions of NMD modelling and IRRBB within the balance sheet through peer-peer discussion and practical examples. Sessions will focus on the successful implementation and utilisation of behavioural modelling and the challenges which are associated.

This course will enhance participants understanding of best practice approaches for behavioural modelling as well as biases in behavioural modelling and frameworks for NMDs and IRRBB modelling.

With a small group activity in the final session, this course will allow delegates to support the theory discussed using real world examples.
