LIBF: Financial Risk Management in Banks (FRMB)

Programme Overview

This qualification will provide a critical evaluation of how financial markets, and both credit and liquidity risks are managed by banks within the current economic and regulatory environment. All of these risks are currently at the very top of a Risk Manager’s agenda within a bank, and given recent volatility, it is critical that there is robust risk management in place.

The Asset and Liability Management (ALM) team’s role is to ensure the effective management of a bank’s assets and liabilities along with ensuring its financial stability. A crucial element of this is managing interest rate and funding gaps, which, given likely future interest rate movements, is acritical task.

A wide range of data and real-life case studies are used to help demonstrate practical issues and considerations for a modern banking industry. You will study how to identify, measure and manage a wide variety of risks, as well as understanding how banks interact with financial markets.


Upon completion of this qualification, participants will be able to understand the following:

  • Analyse the different sources and types of credit risk as well as the the importance and methods of effectively managing the liquidity position of a bank.
  • Evaluate how credit risk management can be optimised to meet the risk appetite and profitability requirements of a bank and its stakeholders as well as the role and importance of asset liability management.
  • Identify, quantify and evaluate a range of financial market risks faced by banks.
  • Apply and critique a range of techniques used to manage financial market risk.

Who Should Attend

This qualification is aimed for managers or those moving into more senior roles and takes a very practical approach to ensure that the participants would be able to develop a good underpinning to risk management.


There are no specific entry requirements for this qualification. However, participants should be confident in their ability to study the mathematical elements of the course. It is strongly recommended that they have previously successfully studied at a similar level. The Level 4 Risk and Regulation in Banking qualification provides a good introduction to financial risk management. Participants also need to be satisfied of their ability to study in English.
