In its efforts to battle inflation, the Fed has triggered a Shocked Rising Rate environment with short-term market rates expected to move over 300bps in less than a year while Fed tapering continues to remove liquidity from the system. It is no surprise that managing deposit sensitivity is dominating strategic discussions, particularly as many institutions are facing the difficult question of how much runoff they are willing to accept before getting aggressive with deposit pricing. Competition is also intensifying as deposit specials quickly climb above 2% which is rapidly elevating cannibalization risk on the large non-maturity deposit base. The deposit pricing decisions you make over the next 100bps of Fed tightening will have a profound impact on margin and customer retention.


Join Darling Consulting Group on Thursday, September 8, 2022 at 2:00 PM ET for an inside look at customer deposit trends through this tightening cycle. We will share live case studies from our vast Deposits360°® client base on recent attrition and migration trends, successful deposit promotions, and overall insights into deposit strategies.


Managing Directors Joe Kennerson and Billy Guthrie will focus on:

  • Cannibalization trends on recent deposit specials

  • Pricing trends by product mix

  • Deposits360°® volume and rate forecast based on the Fed’s tightening expectations

  • Strategies to optimize new money growth and minimize cannibalization
