Understanding Asset Liability Management easily and profoundly is important. After attending the certification course you will visibly demonstrate your competencies in ALM.  Interpretation of ALM reports and judgement of ALM decisions will be possible without third parties help.

i28 Interest Risk Certificate was designed for all working with ALM issues, but not being an ALM/Treasury specialist. We offer ALM knowledge in small, flexible and relevant portions. Depending on your learning speed, it takes 25 hours to learn and to deepen knowledge. The Cyber*School can be completed within 6 weeks.

This first ALM Cetificate covers interest risk management. To get a practical feeling of interest risk management, “i28 – the Interest Risk Simulation” is included in the programme. You will exercise with paper trades and will receive immediate feedback on your actions. So theory is immediately transformed in practical application.
