The internal liquidity adequacy assessment process (ILAAP) regime is an important part of the bank supervision regime, and a cornerstone of Basel III and CRDIV regulatory principles. The need to ensure an efficient ILAAP process has also been reinforced with the finalisation of the PRA’s Pillar 2 liquidity regime. As a resource-intensive process, it is vital for banks to implement firm-wide procedures that ensure an efficient and effective ILAAP process.

This workshop is scheduled to repeat on the following dates: 15 March / 21 May / 17 September


In order to ensure an effective ILAAP process, banks must adopt a proactive and planned approach to liquidity management taking into account the institution’s specific risk appetite and business model.

This workshop presents best-practice ILAAP principles and draws out the main pointers and processes necessary to ensure efficient ILAAP results, as well as an optimised balance sheet and bank liabilities strategy.


By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

  • Operate an efficient and optimised ILAAP process that incorporate, and benefits, the entire bank
  • Obtain presentable results sooner and with greater effectiveness
  • Transfer knowledge bank-wide on “What makes a good ILAAP?”
  • Implement an integrated liabilities strategy that will optimise the liability structure in response to NSFR and LCR
  • Answer the question, “What makes a good ILAAP?”

The workshop makes extensive use of case studies and real-world examples to demonstrate how best to implement an effective and efficient ILAAP process. Delegates take part in Group Exercises that assist in learning best-practice principles.
