Join Scott Hildenbrand of Piper Sandler & Co. for a discussion of balance sheet strategies and tactics in the current environment. Themes will include understanding your A/L position and using derivatives to drive fee income, enhance NIM, and protect capital and earnings. He will also discuss measuring and allocating excess liquidity, deleverage considerations, and opportunities on the asset and liability sides of the balance sheet. This will include relevant accounting and regulatory updates, coupled with market updates to contextualize the ideas and help management teams value the right things in 2022.

Key Takeaways: 

  • Don’t confuse interest rate risk with yield curve risk
  • Reevaluate the way you model and analyze your cost of funds/deposit behavior
  • Use your balance sheet as a weapon
  • Because you are prepared, small moves in rates should lead to execution
