The liquidity strategy, key policies for implementing the strategy, and the liquidity risk management structure should be communicated throughout the organisation by senior management. All business units conducting activities that have an impact on liquidity should be fully aware of the liquidity strategy and operate under the approved policies, procedures, limits and controls. Individuals responsible for liquidity risk management should maintain close links with those monitoring market conditions, as well as with other individuals with access to critical information, such as credit risk managers. Moreover, liquidity risk and its potential interaction with other risks should be included in the risks addressed by risk management committees and/or independent risk management functions.
Senior management should ensure that the bank has adequate internal controls to ensure the integrity of its liquidity risk management process. Senior management should ensure that operationally independent, appropriately trained and competent personnel are responsible for implementing internal controls. It is critical that personnel in independent control functions have the skills and authority to challenge information and modelling
assumptions provided by business lines. When significant changes impact the effectiveness of controls and revisions or enhancements to internal controls are warranted, senior management should ensure that necessary changes are implemented in a timely manner. Internal audit should regularly review the implementation and effectiveness of the agreed framework for controlling liquidity risk.
