Monitoring Indicators for Intraday Liquidity Management

July 04, 2012 /

Intraday liquidity can be defined as funds that are accessible during the business day, usually to enable financial institutions to make payments in real time.

The Basel Committee’s proposed monitoring indicators for intraday liquidity management are intended to allow banking supervisors to monitor a bank’s intraday liquidity risk management. Over time, the indicators will also help supervisors to gain a better understanding of banks’ payment and settlement behaviour and their management of intraday liquidity risk.
