How Do You Eat the NIM Elephant? One BP at a Time. Barry Adcock and Mark Swanson, Deluxe

The past two years have presented bankers with numerous challenges. Among them is the significant compression of your Net Interest Margin (NIM). As the yield curve steepens and the likelihood of tightening by the Fed increases, NIMs will begin to rise from their historic lows. But not all financial institutions are positioned the same. Not all financial institutions will have a plan to optimize their NIM for the long term. Some will leave basis points on the table. In this session veteran bankers Mark Swanson and Barry Adcock will share strategies, tactics and tools to help you Optimize your NIM. They will draw on their experiences, as a former CEO/CFO team during The Great Recession, when they increased their Bank's NIM from 2.95% in 2009 to 4.11% in 2014, one Basis Point (BP) at a time.

Preparing for FDICIA Changes as Institutions Approach $500 Million/$1 Billion, Eric Hanson and Scott Deters, Clark Schaefer Hackett

Community banks have experienced significant balance sheet growth through the pandemic. In many cases this has sped up the timeline in which institutions expect to cross over the asset size thresholds that trigger significant reporting changes under the FDICIA rules. Join us as we discuss those changes in detail, as well as when and how to best prepare.

Inflation, The Fed, and Balance Sheet Management, Ryan Henley, Stifel

With recent inflation indications bolstering the Federal Reserve towards tightening measures, managing the balance sheet’s exposure to liquidity, interest rate and credit risk continues to be paramount. This session will explore aggregate industry insensitivities across the risks, decompose the review into peer ranges and draw parallels for how other institutions may react. The discussion will then turn to exploring strategies both on and off-balance sheet, that can help position institutions for outperformance across a range of outcomes. Commentary throughout will include references to peer activity, regulatory and accounting developments, and finally relative value opportunities in investment loans, funding, and derivatives.

What is Blockchain & How It is Changing the World, Larry Brown, VonLehman CPA & Advisory Firms

Join VonLehman CPA & Advisory Firms as they discuss the use of blockchain technology on cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens and what your organization needs to know to protect themselves, their consumers and how to navigate these topics. This session will provide a basic introduction to blockchain technology focusing on virtual currencies, non-fungible tokens, other current uses of the technology as well as future opportunities. We will also discuss the impact of blockchain technology on the banking industry including operational, accounting, and compliance.
