      Celebrate BSA/AML Day - October 26

      Not all superheroes wear capes. We know the work BSA/AML professionals do is often under-appreciated, especially considering the important role they play of protecting our financial system and our country. This is why we worked to get National Financial Crime Fighter Day, or BSA/AML Day, recognized as a national holiday every October 26th. 

      The Bank Secrecy Act was strengthened with the signing of the USA PATRIOT Act on October 26, 2001, cementing the important role BSA/AML professionals play in the financial industry. This level of national protection is deserving of recognition so on the signing anniversary we show our gratitude and appreciation to these superheroes.

      Join us in celebrating all that BSA/AML professionals do this Saturday, October 26 for BSA/AML Day!

      Visit the official BSA/AML Day website for more information and ways to celebrate.

          Free Webinar | CECL and Your ALM Model

          Wednesday, October 9 | 3 p.m. EST/ 2 p.m. CST
          Presenter: Rob Newberry

          As we get closer to implementation of CECL, we want as much information as we can get to help in understanding everything that should be considered in putting together our CECL models.
          CECL is best thought of as part of a holistic view that focuses on Enterprise Risk Management and not just credit risk alone. It is no longer advisable to operate in silos as you might have done in the past when credit loss reserves were calculated by the Credit Officer for the institution, while Asset/Liability forecasts were in the domain of the CFO. With the need to look at a more forecasted approach to determine credit reserves, it makes sense to leverage some of the assumptions that have been used in the past for developing loan assumptions in your A/L models.

          Join this free webinar to learn:
          • How CECL will impact ALM 
          • Effective capital planning and loan pricing processes
          • What the changing regulatory landscape is like
