Interest Rate Competition, Structure and Forecasting
- 38 Downloads
An important objective of asset-liability management is to minimize the exposure of a bank’s net operating cash flow, and its equity, to changes in interest rates. Achieving this objective would be facilitated if bank management in developing financial markets clearly understands the nature of interest rate competition and the relationship between yields, prices and maturities of investment securities. In addition, the achievement of this objective is facilitated if management has the ability to forecast interest rate changes, and appropriately adjust the bank’s portfolios to these changes.
