11:00 - 12:00 Session 1: Managing Liquidity and Liquidity Risks to Promote Financial Stability The session will discuss the building blocks necessary to support both conventional banks and institutions offering Islamic financial services (IIFS) in managing their liquidity risk to promote financial stability. The discussions will focus on the close relation between liquidity management and financial stability, the infrastructure components that are required to facilitate measuring and managing liquidity risks as well as the role of supervisory bodies and central banks in this process. This would include the supply of high-quality liquid assets (HQLA) and providing lender of last resort facilities.
12:00 - 13:00 Session 2: Global Regulatory Developments in Liquidity Risk Management The session will focus on the current and emerging international standards on liquidity risk management – both qualitative and quantitative. It aims to provide an overview of the guiding principles, standards and guidelines on intraday, short- and long-term management of liquidity risk issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, with a special emphasis on the Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) and Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR). The session will provide insights on how these global standards are being incorporated in the national regulations by various supervisory authorities.

14:00 - 15:15 Session 3: Global Developments in Liquidity Risk and Challenges for Islamic Finance The session will discuss global developments in liquidity risk management and challenges faced by IIFS in complying with the liquidity standards. The deliberations will also include progress made by the IFSB in providing guidance on liquidity risk and adopting global liquidity standards including the LCR and NSFR for the IIFS. In addition to discussing challenges related to Sharī`ah-complaint HQLA, treatment of profit-sharing investment accounts, Sharī`ah-compliant repo mechanisms and application of alternative liquidity approaches for the Islamic financial services industry, the session will cover the progress made by various jurisdictions in resolving some of these issues.
15:15 - 15:45 Coffee Break and Networking
15:45 - 17:00 Session 4: Key Elements for Structuring Liquidity Instruments by the Public Sector This session will focus on the key components for structuring and issuing high-quality instruments by sovereigns and central banks in local and international currencies. Speakers will highlight the advantages of linking public debt management and development programmes with government financing instruments that are issued in sufficient volume and on a predictable schedule. The session will focus on the use of both conventional and Sharī`ah-compliant liquidity instruments for monetary policy and money market operations.

Cross-border transfer of liquidity risk and the challenges it poses for the regulation and supervision of this risk will be part of the discussions.
