Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter: Asset Liability Management in Today’s Historically Low Interest Rate Environment
The Fed has cut rates back to zero and balance sheet changes in the first half of 2020 have been significant. Many banks are now faced with a bleaker earnings outlook than recent years and margin compression may have already started to take its toll in this challenging rate environment. Keeping every dollar on the balance sheet efficient utilized and allocated has become even more critical as the risk of another prolonged low rate environment is likely a reality.
The following topics will be highlighted during this presentation:
- Brief Economic Review
- Federal Reserve Outlook
- Current Banking Trends
- IRR Best Practices
- Investment Portfolio Strategies
