Behavioural Modelling: NMDs and IRRBB

Expand your knowledge of behavioural modelling with an in-depth focus on application, development and management of IRRBB and NMD models

This course has been developed to provide participants a deep dive into behavioural modelling, with an exploration of NMD modelling and IRRBB and their role in the balance sheet.

During this course, participants will be shown the practical application of behavioural models and how these can be successfully implemented and utilised. Sessions will cover applied examples of NMD modelling, IRRBB and how to incorporate behavioural modelling with liquidity risk, ALM and FTP. 

Interactive 60-minute presentations are spread over four days to facilitate discussion between participants and course leaders and to ensure maximum engagement with the technical content explored during this course.

This course has been developed around the book ‘ A guide to behavioural modelling’ by Dr Matteo Formenti. Participants will be able to interact with our expert speakers and discuss the topic in more detail. [107]
