Managing risk and liquidity within the new regulatory framework

Before the financial crisis of 2008, liquidity was more or less accorded step-motherly treatment by the regulators with the implicit assumption being that the central bank will fulfil the role of lender of last resort. Unfortunately, in several regulatory regimes, this was not to be.

We were joined by Suresh Sankaran, Head of Risk Governance, Metro Bank (UK)  who discussed how liquidity risk, consequent to the crisis, has seen an evolution, a move away from static reporting and towards a more nuanced 'what if' analysis incorporating other risk events in the stress testing framework. He touched on the Covid-19 pandemic, which has resulted in a liquidity constraint mainly for the non ban financial services sector, mainly due to the burgeoning of fintechs and start-ups  and showcased the tightrope act that liquidity risk managers need to adopt to survive the ever-increasing regulatory morass as well as to overcome bottom-line margin pressures.
