Up, Up and …. Balance Sheet Management in a World of Great Uncertainty
Matt Pieniazek, Darling Consulting
The inverted yield curve has arrived and Fed tightening remains in high gear. When we gather in early February, fed funds will likely be at a 15 year high and Treasury rate levels will be anyone’s guess. Funding and related costs will be under elevated pressure, and economic uncertainty will weigh heavily on lending, investment, and hedging strategy discussions. Navigating successfully in 2023 will necessitate that banking leadership look at their institution through different lenses and change the conversation throughout their bank, especially at ALCO. Join Matt for a high-energy and thought-provoking discussion of key considerations and strategies for managing your entire balance sheet in a world of great uncertainty. Where do we go from here?
