World Business StrategiesServing the Global Financial Community since 2000

The Certificate of Bank Treasury Risk Management (BTRM) is a six-month, part-time course designed to empower individuals working in, or intending to work in, every aspect of bank balance sheet management and asset-liability management (ALM). The BTRM is unique in being the only professional certification for bank Treasury, Finance and Risk professionals that covers every aspect of bank ALM, capital and liquidity risk management. The strong emphasis of the course throughout is on practical relevance and equipping students with the tools and techniques required by banks in the real world. The BTRM is a career-enhancing professional certiciate.

Asset-liability management is the core discipline in banking, and one that must be mastered by every bank, irrespective of its operating model or product suite. The post-crash Basel III environment emphasises a strong adherence to conservative principles of capital and liquidity management – the traditional role of the Treasury function in a bank. Obtaining the BTRM provides students not only with a recognised professional certificate demonstrating excellence in the Treasury space, it is also a sign of genuine commitment to excellence in risk management.

BTRM is practitioner led, developed and orientated, and enables students to acquire an advanced-level understanding on the core process of bank ALM governance. Practitioners will be able to apply best-practice techniques to measure ALM risks and formulate strategies for management of these risks at their employing institutions.
