Corporate Banking - Part 10


This eCourse consists of two modules. Module 1 describes the main functions and roles within corporate banking, from revenue-generating front office staff to the essential work performed by loan administration staff in the operations (back office) area.

Module 2 explores portfolio management in the context of a corporate banking operation, examining how and why it is an invaluable tool for banks. Portfolio management refers to the practice of managing a bank’s assets and liabilities in order to optimise the balance between risk, return, and liquidity. As these three parameters are opposed to each other, the balance can be difficult to achieve.
