Liquidity Management Working Group

Background and mission

Efficient and effective liquidity management arrangements and processes are important for the business of banks and corporates alike. Liquidity managers are currently facing many challenges, including the migration of liquidity management practices into the digital area and to real-time processes.

To support liquidity management professionals in better understanding and dealing with ongoing market developments as well as related technical, operational, regulatory and organisational questions, the Euro Banking Association (EBA) launched a Liquidity Management Working Group (LMWG), which began its work in the third quarter of 2017.

The objective of the EBA Liquidity Management WG is to deliver thought leadership on liquidity management practices with a clear focus on the segment of corporates. The working group will not address commercial or business aspects. The deliverables will be primarily informative and include an analysis of trends and envisaged future developments.

Current activities

On Thursday, 12 November, at 14:00 CET, and on Tuesday, 17 November, at 11:00 CET, the working group will present their new report "Enhancing liquidity management with the support of advanced data analytics". The two one-hour webcasts are free of charge and for EBA members only.

In the report, the working group takes a closer look at how corporates can expand their use of data analytics and how their banks can support them.
During the webcast, the following key questions will be addressed:

  • What are the main challenges currently faced by corporate treasurers?
  • How data analytics could drive efficiency within corporate treasuries?
  • What are the primary hurdles to the adoption of data cultures in both and corporates and how they may be overcome?
