Data and Deposits: From the Past to the Future

Are you uncertain about you how your deposit analysis compares to others in this hectic and unprecedented time? Are you diving deep enough into what the data can tell you? Is your institution keeping enough data to contend with what lies ahead? We hope you can join us as we explore non-maturity deposit analysis and the data that drives it. Navigating your customer deposit base is hard enough just from the customer perspective, but the data those customers provide as well as the value to your balance sheet can be downright mind-boggling. We will look back to how far we have come, where we are now, and what we think the future will bring – both in regards to your customer deposit base and insights the data can tell us.

• A brief history and timeline of deposit analysis and the data drivers
• Where we are now?
• What else can we discover from the data – and how can we leverage it? Including examples of different ways to slice the data to tell a story.
• What could the future hold?

• Data retention necessities
• The key components of a deposit study
• How to most effectively utilize your data to drive strategic decisions within your institution

Target Audiences:
This workshop is designed for CFO’s, Treasurers, Controllers, COO’s and anyone looking to gain insight into the largest item on their balance sheet, and how to leverage it to help their institution.

Fairness in the Face of Crisis:
Fair and Responsible Banking in the Midst of Chaos

COVID-19 has changed the way we live and the way we work. While compliance officers must navigate a “new normal”, unemployment has surged, and for vulnerable consumers, fairness is more important than ever. This session will cover strategies for navigating multiple pandemic-driven challenges, including: 

  • an influx of loss mitigation workouts;
  • CARES Act implications;
  • and maintaining compliance with fairness standards to avoid future potential regulatory scrutiny.

COVID-19’s effect on Banking, Bank Customers,
and Banking Regulation through the ERM Lens

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly shifted how financial institutions do everything. The rapid deployment of new technology, onboarding of new vendors, modification of banking regulation, and the approach of bank examiners changed, and changed all at the same time. Using the ERM lens to analyze the impacts we will look at operational risk, accounting and tax treatments, compliance, and the examination process in the banking industry—and how banks have had to evolve their ERM programs to ensure continuity and stability and ensure success in the “new normal.”

Using the SBA 504 Program to Increase Income
While Helping Existing Bank Relationships

This session is designed to give you tools to increase SBA 504 volume and lending capabilities for the bank. We will go over marketing techniques to use both offensively to win deals and defensively for lenders to maintain their banking relationships while still providing 504 financing to their clients. Tools include use of the SBA 504 1st mortgage wholesale market to help community banks beat stiff competition from both larger banks and 7(a) competition on a nationwide basis while earning fee income with no risk. Banks win by maintaining and gaining deposits, and earning premium. We will go over programs which enable lenders to increase their lending capacity, increase their credit box, and widen their choices of rates and terms offered to borrowers. The net effect is to increase lenders’ access to capital to expand financing options to small businesses.
