Profiting from a Rising Rate Environment While Managing Regulatory Concerns

January 11: Online

Program Speaker:

Frank Farrone, Managing Director

Bank margins are finally improving as interest rates have begun to rise from historic lows after the Great Recession. Fundamentally, this may be an interim benefit as bankers have not moved the rates on their deposits yet and the yield curve continues to flatten. Meanwhile, unrealized losses on bonds have resurfaced, EVE risk is rising, and regulatory scrutiny is increasing across the board and will likely intensify ahead.  Key variables of concern include overall liquidity levels, the “stickiness of deposits”, price sensitivity of deposits, and the potential for disintermediation as rates rise. Is your ALCO prepared to respond accordingly and with confidence?

A well prepared and focused Asset/Liability Management Committee has far better odds of balancing current earnings needs with the challenges of the New Rate Cycle and the ever increasing regulatory demands. Many bankers will hit the panic button at precisely the wrong time and take action they will likely regret down the road for long time. Forewarned is Forearmed!
