Program Overview: Does your Board of Directors and ALCO understand the fundamentals of your ALM program?

Invite your Board of Directors to join you for FMS’ upcoming webinar, ALM for the Board of Directors, and gain the tools you need to effectively educate your institution’s Board on their ALM roles and responsibilities.

During this unique program, Dr. Jim Clarke, PhD, President of Clarke Consulting and a board member at two banks himself, will provide a comprehensive overview on the development of the ALCO process, focusing on the role of the Board in asset/liability management. You and your board will learn the latest regulatory concerns related to interest rate risk (IRR) as well as what policies and procedures you should be aware of as rates continue to rise in 2018.

The program will conclude with a robust discussion on ALM decision making, deposit strategies to help your institution cope in today’s interest rate environment, and wholesale strategies you can employ involving the FHLB advances and brokered CDs.

Can’t attend the live session with your Board of Directors? No worries! A recording will be made available after the presentation in FMS’ On-Demand Library. You can use this program at your next Board of Directors meeting to help you lead a healthy conversation on ALM practices at your institution.

By attending this webinar, you and your Board of Directors will learn:
  • Best practices and insights in the ALCO process
  • How to differentiate the role of the board versus the role of management in managing the balance sheet
  • A greater understanding of market risk with a major focus on interest rate risk and stress testing
  • The language of the ALCO and how to help your leadership become more active members
  • How to evaluate asset/liability management through the interest rate cycle from theory to practice
  • Achieve a better understanding of the changes in customer behavior and the impact on modeling interest rate risk
