US & EU Views on FSB Liquidity Recommendations

In July 2023, the Financial Stability Board published recommendations to address vulnerabilities from liquidity mismatch in open-ended funds, including the introduction of the liquidity bucketing requirement with direct consequences for the design of fund liquidity terms. 

The internationally applicable requirement has elicited different responses in the US and EU and has highlighted the differences of liquidity management frameworks for funds across the globe.

Learning objectives:

·  Examine key differences in liquidity risk management practices in the US and EU

·  Understand how these differences influence US and EU responses to FSB recommendations

·  Discuss operational challenges for global asset managers of addressing different frameworks within their organizations
