What is Evaluating Liquidity Risk?
Exposure to liquidity risk was one of the main causes of the credit crisis of 2008 and one of the main issues that still poses a challenge for companies today. This intensive one-day program offers an overview of some of the key problems that companies face when market conditions deteriorate and some of the actions that companies may need to take to protect their liquidity position. It addresses the limitations of traditional liquidity measures like the quick and current ratios and demonstrates a practical framework that can be used to assess a company’s liquidity position and their ability to access sources of liquidity under stress. During the course participants will apply the framework to an illustration case and work on a case study to apply the skills that they have learned.
