Beyond Duration Risk: Managing Liquidity and Earnings Risk Through the Rate Cycle
Presented by Steve Hawk, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Derivative Path and Scott Hildenbrand, Principal/Chief Balance Sheet Strategist, Sandler O’Neill and Partners, L.P.
Between the flattening yield curve and tightening credit spreads, banks are facing an extremely challenging rate environment. Meanwhile, valuation multiples have expanded, demonstrating a disconnect between this harsh reality and investor optimism. In today’s world, interest rate risk is more than just the negative mark-to-market on a bond portfolio. It is also the impact of additional rate hikes into a flattening yield curve on margin compression and deposit competition. Join us for a discussion on the challenges presenting banks todays and potential strategies to address them.
Presented by Thomas Goodman, Senior Account Executive, Federal Reserve Bank of New York

The “Art” of the Branch
Presented by Jeff Winter, Senior Vice President Business Development, NewGround and Brian Porter, Vice President, Professional Services, Americas, Glory Global Solutions. Sponsored by Glory
While in-branch customer satisfaction is increasing, customer engagement (likelihood to buy) is often not keeping pace. The complex inter-play between people, processes and technology, combined with the differences between branches across your network, means a “one size fits all” approach may not deliver your business objectives. When it comes to branch transformation, it is a combination of art and science. In this session, you’ll learn who the customers are who still come to your branch, gain a deeper understanding of research data associated with customer behavior, develop a structural model for assessing key elements of branch transformation projects, understand what a customer-facing Universal Banker still set looks like, and look at your customer’s perspective of wants and needs.
