Inflation, Stagflation, and Recession Ahead: Balance Sheet Management Strategies for Highly Uncertain Times

Join Darling Consulting Group for breakfast and hear from peer firms at this signature complimentary regional event at the InterContinental Miami.

Rapidly rising rates during Fed tightening, historically low unemployment levels, high inflation and an inverted yield curve combine to make this time truly different. Stagflation seems to be the most logical outcome and if so, the worst of all worlds for financial institutions. Meanwhile, the margin relief from higher rates, a steeper curve, and lowest cost money in a lifetime is quickly coming to an end. 2023 and beyond planning begins now! Forewarned is forearmed for what looks to be a very challenging few years ahead.

In this timely discussion, DCG Managing Director Frank Farone will highlight case studies from over 1,400 annual ALCO meetings to address many of the key questions that are top of mind for financial executives today. To what degree will rates rise and over what time? More importantly, what about the slope of the curve? What have we learned from previous rate cycles, and what strategies should we consider and avoid this time around?

Topics will include:

  • Managing deposits effectively in a rising rate cycle: DCG will share never-before-seen deposit analyses and forecasting from the Deposits360°® client base for insight to better manage your deposit base

  • Wholesale funding strategies & derivatives explored

  • Loan pricing techniques and hold vs. sell decisions made simple

  • Investment strategies to consider and avoid: pre-investment and leverage opportunities

  • High performing ALCOs: What separates the best from the rest?

  • What’s on YOUR mind?
