Managing Interest Rate Risks: Auditing ALM Plans, Procedures, and Controls

The Fed slowly increased the Federal Funds rate from 0.25% in December 2015 to 2.50% in December 2018. Last year, rates fell. These fluctuations have presented significant challenges for managing interest rate risks through the asset and liability management (ALM) effort.

Rising interest rates helped institutions to improve net interest margins. Falling rates reduce interest spreads and lead to lower margins. When the Fed decreases rates, market risks may be increasing.

You need to review your ALM process to determine if your procedures and controls are managing interest rate risks effectively.

  • Is your institution’s ALM focus consistent with regulatory guidance?
  • What are the ALCO’s challenges with implementing ALM strategies when interest rates are experiencing short-term fluctuations?
  • How can you manage interest rate risks during uncertain economic times?
  • What procedures should you include in an ALM audit work program?
