Preparing for Rising Rates: Balance Sheet Strategies in a Changing Environment
The Fed’s hawkish policy pivot revealed in the most recent FOMC minutes is good news for the industry as the market anticipates earlier Fed actions causing higher rates along the curve. Financial institutions are balancing the earnings challenges in today’s low rate environment against the fear by many of inflation and multiple Fed hikes ahead. Difficult balance sheet decisions will revolve around excess liquidity strategies, preparing for heightened deposit competition and potential disintermediation, and comfort level to add longer-term assets amid rising rates, among other challenges. Please join Eric Poulin, Darling Consulting Group Account Manager, for this session that will take the fear out of rising rates and highlight strategic opportunities for your ALCO to capitalize on in 2022.
