Optimization Through Integration


Register Now

Using an integrated modeling approach to streamline the asset liability function, optimize pricing and maximize profitability.

Until recently, technology, processing power and financial systems have forced banks and credit unions to use multiple systems to calculate and forecast reserve requirements (ALLL/CECL), Earnings, Value, Budgeting and Profitability. The consequence has been human and capital resources wasted on reconcilements rather than business strategy. This webinar will show how, with the right tools, it is possible to use a single source of data and a single source of predicted cash flows to model liquidity, income, value and credit loss, thus optimizing profitability and pricing.
