Liquidity and risk management are under a microscope like never before in the wake of bank failures and tightening liquidity conditions – with no end in sight. A new era of liquidity management requires a paradigm shift for many, and places a premium on fortifying processes and preparing for what lies ahead.

In this session, DCG Managing Director Frank Farone and Senior Consultant Jeff Croteau will share real examples of how proactive financial institutions develop “best practice” approaches to liquidity management. They will describe recent regulatory feedback and provide action items to enhance liquidity reporting, including: dynamic forecasting, stress testing, early warning indicators, and effective policy development. Additionally, they will highlight considerations for effectively managing a liquidity position in the current environment.

Position your financial institution for success in 2024 and beyond. Tune in to learn more about:

  • The right approach beyond traditional metrics and ratios

  • Managing regulatory pressures and what to expect on your next exam

  • Building the appropriate stress tests and remediation plans

  • Critical elements of an effective Contingency Funding Plan
