Balance Sheet Strategies for Successfully Managing Successfully Managing Through Flattening/Inverted Yield Curve Environment

OL186-18  |  On Demand Course  |  Update  |  Self-Study


Interest margins are finally improving for many while others are now feeling a tight squeeze as interest rates are rising and the curve is flattening to disturbing levels.  For many, danger may be lurking ahead as they have not moved the rates on their deposits yet, however that party is ending quickly. Meanwhile, loan rates are lagging the rise in rates due to competitive pressures; 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. The big jump in rates is just ahead, learn the traditional and historical tipping point for rates and how to respond accordingly and with confidence?

Recent changes in FASB’s hedging guidance have dramatically increased the attractiveness of derivatives for community financial institutions.  These accounting changes have unlocked significant opportunities to explore loan and deposit growth strategies that were difficult to achieve previously.  Ignore this game changing benefit at your peril.   Real world strategies will be discussed and dissected.

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 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!
