Reviewing liquidity risk

A business needs some liquidity, for example access to assets that can be easily converted to cash to cover short-term financial obligations. A profitable business may find that it has to cease operating if it is unable to pay off its liabilities because it can't quickly convert its assets into cash.

This course explains common causes of liquidity risks, and how you can use ratios to identify potential areas of risk.

What will I learn?

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • identify potential liquidity risks using ratio analysis
  • articulate the impact poor liquidity management can have on an organisation.

Please note: This course does not address Basel principles, so it may not be relevant to you if work in a banking institution operating under Basel principles.

Who should do the course?

  • All internal auditors: This course will help you understand liquidity and the ratios you can use to assess liquidity.

What will I do?

The course comprises one module and a quiz. After you have completed these components, including achieving 80% on the quiz, you will be able to download your certificate of completion.

You have 90 days to complete the course; however, it should not take you more than 90 minutes to complete.

Technical requirements

The course is online so you will need access to an internet-enabled device. All the material is written and responsive and so displays well on any device. However, you will need a laptop or PC with a mouse to complete some of the quiz questions.
