Looking forward for strategic advantage.

How many institutions can project how depositors will behave as rates move and market alternatives become more enticing? Without insight from a comprehensive core deposit study into how depositors behaved in past rate cycles, institutions are essentially flying blind in a current environment that is changing daily. Are you effectively using data to drive strategic funding decisions?

Darling Consulting Group is pleased to introduce Deposits360°® Forecasted Core Deposit Study & Predictive Analytics. This enhancement to the Deposits360° platform enables institutions to create forward-looking forecasts to strategically study their deposits and drive stability while lowering funding costs. The Forecasted Study is a best-in-class quantification of:

  •  How an institution’s deposits have behaved in the past

  •  How they compare to peers

  •  How they may rationally project them to perform in the future, given a specific market rate forecast

​​“The good news is that technology and predictive analytics have evolved, and the early adopters have a competitive advantage.”

Forward Looking Modeling

While traditional studies seek to quantify historical deposit activity to support rate sensitivity (beta) and decay assumptions for risk models, DCG’s forecasted deposit study is a new way to think about how depositors may be expected to behave going forward.

Predictive Analytics

Multi-variable methodologies give users a dynamic, constantly-evolving outlook on how deposit rates and balances are projected to behave in various scenarios.

Dynamic Assumptions

Your deposit base is not static, so why should assumptions be based on a one-time or annual review? Deposits360° updates model assumptions each time users input data.

Decay / Beta

Dynamic Beta calculations and vintage decay forecasting provide the quantitative rigor with easy to understand approaches.

Regulatory Acceptance

With over 225 clients and growing, your institution will benefit from thousands of exam cycles and iterative model and process improvements.

Sophisticated But Understandable

Don't ever rely on a black box model again. The Deposits360° team educates all users on key elements of the study so that executives can be armed with actionable insights.

About Deposits360° Forecasted Deposit Study & Predictive Analytics

The study employs a first-in-its-class "bottom up" approach which:
  • Starts at the individual account level
  • Analyzes multiple account attributes
  • Factors in market rate dynamics and cross-institutional data
  • Calculates their combined impact on deposit behaviors
This allows the users to not only quantify historical activity with more precision, but also to mathematically translate the historical quantification into a forward-looking forecast.
