Balance Sheet Strategy: Understanding Your Options in Any Environment


Register Now

Join Scott Hildenbrand, Sandler O’Neill’s Principal and Chief Balance Sheet Strategist, as he presents current trends and themes in the banking sector. Banks face an increasingly challenging operating environment late in the economic cycle. At this point in the cycle, it’s back to basics for banks. This means focusing on earnings quality over quantity, pricing loans for late cycle risk, replenishing on-balance sheet liquidity, and maintaining sufficient capital as a buffer against normalized credit costs. Scott will explore ways your institution can identify your exposure to interest rates, rising cost of funds, regulatory changes, capital considerations, and accounting implications. He will then discuss how management teams can evaluate and communicate strategies that will address these exposures.
