Deposit Strategies In a Pandemic – Analytics and Deposit Study Tools to Better Manage Balance Sheet Risks

Finance & Accounting

Most institutions have observed a significant spike or surge in deposits since the onset of COVID-19. This unusual increase in deposits and liquidity are accompanied by a variety of uncertainties that raise important questions about the dependability of these elevated levels. Your institution’s outlook on the stability of these deposits has significant implications for lending appetite, loan pricing strategy, deposits strategy and use of wholesale funding.  
These deposit behaviors may arguably be the most significant assumption in your interest rate risk and liquidity models. What will your models assume for rate sensitivity and average life stability? Best in class institutions are utilizing analytical tools including forecasting capabilities and data science to determine appropriate deposit strategy roadmap during this very uncertain time. 
This webinar will share current deposit trends from Darling Consulting Group’s vast data set such as current and expected balance decay, CD retention levels, and migration analysis (to name a few) which can help drive strategies to lower funding costs while managing the deposit base.
