What if the Fed executes a perfect soft landing? What if there is a hard landing? What if there is a crash landing?


The reality is that no banker or risk manager knows what will happen next, but there is a consensus in the industry that the probability of a recession is elevated. If we had perfect information, would our institution weather the storm differently? The first step is understanding the potential range of outcomes and what that means for our balance sheet and risk management process.


In this discussion, DCG’s Executive Director Justin Bakst and Managing Director John Demeritt will address changing credit and risk levels and strategies to stay ahead of uncertain market dynamics.
