About this paper
Lately, liquidity risk has received serious attention from regulators, banks and investors alike. And rightly so, as everyone witnessed how an exogenous credit crisis compounds itself into a major liquidity crisis (or funding problem), propagating very quickly through the global financial markets, leading to insolvency of major financial institutions. This paper discusses challenges faced by financial institutions in the area of liquidity risk measurement and management as well as the SAS response to these challenges – an integrated risk solution that can meet the immediate requirements banks have, while providing a framework to support future business needs.
