Webinar Details and Materials

Managing Your Balance Sheet in Times of Crisis

We will look at the recent events and outline several challenges and expectations facing the industry. What actions should you consider as you prepare for future loan loss allowance changes? Liquidity risk is a critical component in any “crisis”. As such, we will discuss the impact of events on issues such as loan repayments, credit line draws, changes to deposit patterns and how these all impact short and intermediate needs.


Creating Your Ideal Funding Plan Structure


During this session we will focus on the funding needs of the institution. With the stock market volatility, many institutions are reporting inflows of funds in a “flight to safety”. In this session we will outline the ideal funding plan structure, and how these events may turn to opportunities for more core deposit growth in the future.


Navigating a Flattening Yield Curve During Record Low Rates

Session 3 will switch the focus to the asset side of the balance sheet. Specifically we will examine the options facing lenders in a flattened yield curve at record low rates. Do we meet customer demands for long-term, fixed rate assets, or do we pass? How does our ALM reporting indicate our risk levels and what are the right measures to consider?



Asset and Funding Strategies


In the last session of this series, we will present a combination of asset and funding strategies to show how to evaluate the different options facing your financial institution.
