Balance Sheet Strategy: Protecting Against Potentially Decreasing Rates
Our economic expansion is one of the longest on record and fed funds is already up about 200 bps from cycle lows. As macro and political events expose the market’s shaking confidence in the Fed’s ability to raise rates, we are seeing more banks take a proactive approach to protect against falling rates. Please join Scott Hildenbrand, Principal and Chief Balance Sheet Strategist at Sandler O’Neill, as he discusses the emerging theme of down rate risk and its impact on the community banking landscape. Actionable ideas, including tactical balance sheet repositioning, off-balance sheet hedging, and liability restructurings will be covered to provide examples of how banks are approaching this new challenge.
