Darling Consulting Group is pleased to invite you to an exclusive 75-minute DCG webinar: Bracing for the “Ripple Effect.”


Over the past two years, the Fed has taken meaningful steps to avoid a credit crisis. These initiatives have created “ripples” in the economy – the largest buildup of deposits on record, inflation, and more – resulting in a wholly new risk management situation.


Now, speculation on how high the Fed may hike rates to combat pricing pressure is creating concerns, even from the Fed themselves, of a possible recession. The potential impact of credit deterioration looms over asset quality, earnings, and capital.


Join Darling Consulting Group’s Managing Director John Demeritt and Senior Consultant Eric Poulin on Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at 2:00 PM ET as they share updates to capital/credit-related market conditions along with recent client case studies in the area of credit and capital forecasting, including:

  • Current market conditions and how we got here

  • Recent anecdotes of regulatory feedback related to credit/capital

  • Best practices for credit/capital risk management – challenges and opportunities

  • Tools and approaches available to refine your risk management processes


Please forward this invitation to your team. We look forward to you joining us at this free, CPE credit-eligible webinar.
