National Asset Liability Management Americas Symposium
13 - 14 June 2013, Sao Paulo
Tackling balance-sheet dilemmas in today's interconnected economy
Central Banking Publications is pleased to announce the dates of its 2nd annual National Asset-Liability Management Americas symposium which will take place in Sao Paolo on 13-14 June, 2013.
Designed specifically for central banks and official sector wealth, reserves and savings funds, this two-day event will encompass a series of presentations, panels and case studies addressing three interrelated, integral themes and drawing on contributions from the public sector, academia and stakeholders.
Key topics include:
- Assessing the impact of the global economic crises
- Setting up a sovereign wealth fund
- The profit and loss statement dilemma
- Optimal central bank reserves
- Asset-Liability Management: coordination in practice
- Evaluating currency compositions for public debt
- Revisiting reserve currencies: looking beyond the dollar and euro
- Risk management for central bank foreign reserves
- Recent developments in foreign reserve policy
Amidst the prevailing uncertainty in the global markets, policy makers face the head-on balance sheet dilemma where funding costs are poised to increase precisely at the moment their foreign currency revenues fall. Central Banks are now facing the challenge of hedging their financing needs and rebalancing their assets and liabilities in line with this climate of caution, risk aversion and reserve accumulation.
Leading institutions are already recognising the need to diversify currency portfolios, manage public debt, overhaul domestic investment strategies, secure foreign investment and assess reserve accumulation.
