After several years of monetary expansion, the era of zero interest rates and quantitative easing is approaching its natural end. In this PRMIA meeting, we ask the simple question: What happens when Interest Rates go up?
 
•What does this mean for the profitability and economic soundness of Banks?
•What will be the impact of rising rates on other risk factors, such as credit and liquidity risks?
•Are we ready for rates to go up? – or are there hidden surprises?
To discuss this highly relevant topic, we have two expert speakers from the Dutch banking sector.
