Funds Transfer Pricing (101): Fundamentals

Finance & Accounting

Net interest margin remains the primary income source for most financial institutions. The ability to better measure, understand and analyze net interest margin across all segments of the organization through funds transfer pricing (FTP) is the cornerstone in financial and performance management. In this webinar we will provide attendees with an overview of the purpose and value of funds transfer pricing, while also reviewing the fundamental concepts, measurement approaches and best practices in the FTP process. Having a solid understanding and processes for FTP and the resulting net interest margin enables financial institutions and their teams to better analyze full profitability, pricing strategies and opportunities, risk positions, and planned financial performance.
