Market reforms are now common place for the financial sector and banks are being challenged to manage their liquidity more efficiently.
However, a recent paper from the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision at the Bank for International Settlements outlined monitoring tools for managing and reporting intraday liquidity management. The challenge for banks now is to manage resources and expertise in order to comply with the BIS requirements by the January 2015 deadline
In addition to the BIS requirements, Dodd-Frank in the US looks at the centralisation of derivatives clearing and the European Market Infrastructure Regulation creates more liquidity but requires banks to both reform their business flows and to post more high-quality collateral.
Finextra and SmartStream have gathered a panel of industry thought leaders to debate and discuss the ongoing challenges of intraday liquidity management.
