We’ve been dealt an extremely difficult hand over the past twelve months dealing with the impact of a global pandemic on markets and the economy. Now, community financial institutions have another challenge: more cash on their balance sheets than ever, with compressed margins as loan growth remains slow. Join us for a lively discussion on how sound risk management can stabilize profit levels and ensure you’re not leaving additional income opportunities on the table from a lack of action.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why rising interest rates may be a good thing for depository institutions
  • Describe how the market environment can impact the three core depository functions
  • Identify the key strategies that high-performing institutions will enact during periods of rising rates
  • Learn why we believe it’s more important to focus on the long term than to try to predict the direction of interest rates
