Interest Rate Risk & Investment Strategies Seminar
Minnesota CU Network and The Baker Group are offering a seminar on Interest Rate Risk and Investment Strategies. Two years after the pandemic left financial institutions drowning in excess liquidity at historically low interest rates, the industry faces a new challenge: Rising interest rates. The Fed has quickly pivoted from supporting the economy to fighting inflation and credit unions are now facing the first rising rate environment in years. Portfolio managers must be proactive in managing their investment portfolio and balance sheet in the face of rising rates and a flattening yield curve. This seminar on May 3rd in Minneapolis will examine these concerns and present actionable strategies to better prepare your institution for the uncertainty ahead.
