Implications from the pandemic brought renewed focus on risk management for banks and credit unions. However, many smaller financial institutions silo their risk management in departments and are reactionary to regulatory pressure. With many institutions facing critical decisions on deploying excess liquidity into loans or securities to manage profitability, the importance of a strong ERM process has never been more in focus.
Low interest rates on investment alternatives and borrower preferences for fixed rate loans is increasing the pressure to consider taking on manageable levels of interest rate risk to mitigate high costs of excess liquidity. Yet many risk assessment processes miss the mark on understanding the trade-offs and potential gains from such a decision.


Join this webinar to learn:
  • Information for capital planning, risk appetite, and overall strategy going forward
  • How management/directors can respond to future challenges
  • Why a risk assessment can set institutions up for success
