Michael Erhardt of ICBA Securities to Present “The Changing Landscape of Liquidity”

Liquidity is a key concern among financial institutions and regulators.  Loan growth is outpacing deposit growth while non-core funding is becoming a larger percentage of total assets.  Competition for deposits is fierce as the largest banks search for high-quality, LCR-compliant retail deposits and the increase in short-term rates has spurred growth at the online banks offering more attractive yields.  During this session, Michael will discuss “best practices” for liquidity risk management, regulatory expectations, and contingency funding strategies to help community banks supplement core deposit growth.
