IMAS Lunchtime Talk Series: Liquidity Risk Management for Collective Investment Schemes

Multi‐asset class liquidity risk is a primary concern for investors and risk managers alike. The financial crisis in 2008 has shown how ineffective risk management can be when liquidity is overlooked; that is when models assume ample funding and low trading costs. Consequently, regulators have started to institute formal liquidity risk controls.

In this Talk, liquidity metrics and approaches for measuring, monitoring, and managing the liquidity of multi‐asset‐class portfolios will be discussed. Portfolio liquidity is the interplay between asset liquidity and liquidity commitments. Asset liquidity is in turn a trade‐off between transaction cost, order size and time horizon effects of a trading activity. This Talk will also attempt to bring traditional equity market impact models from the trading floor into risk management and across other asset classes.
