Managing Liquidity through a Crisis: This Is NOT a Drill – Key Action Items for Today’s Uncertain Times

Finance & Accounting

While the duration of the current pandemic and resulting downturn is uncertain, it has become clear that capital in the banking industry is going to be challenged from lower earnings and elevated credit-related costs. Earnings and capital deterioration go hand in hand with liquidity stress and, as such, you must be operating from a position of strength from a liquidity perspective. Liquidity is the lifeblood of every financial institution, and history has proven that in times of extreme stress and recessionary conditions, liquidity is the critical component that ultimately determines outcomes – and even survival.  Appropriate policy flexibility, institution-specific risk monitoring/stress scenarios, and diversification of liquidity sources are critical. To successfully navigate this economic turbulence, institutions must ensure their contingency funding plan is up to date and that key personnel know their roles and responsibilities – this is not a drill!

Who Should Attend: CFOs, CEOs, CPAs, Controllers, Investment Officers, Treasurers, and Senior Bank Management
