Interest rate risk management is a core component of asset and liability management (ALM) for banking institutions and refers to the potential adverse impact on a bank’s earnings, capital, or overall financial health resulting from fluctuations in interest rates. Effective from the 30th of June 2023, the European Banking Authority (EBA) have issued revised guidelines on the management of interest rate risk, including the publication of a standardised methodology covering both economic value of equity (EVE) and net interest income (NII).
