Nov 28-30, 2018

Our three-day A/LM Education course includes the The Fundamentals: Using A/LM for Actionable Business Intelligence and The Next Step: Connecting A/LM with Strategy.

The Fundamentals: Using A/LM for Actionable Business Intelligence

CLASS FULL:  Please contact us to be added to the waiting list. 

Our flagship course will show you how to use A/LM to provide your team with actionable business intelligence.  You’ll leave with a better grasp of the answers to questions such as:

  • What are high-functioning credit unions doing to remain relevant long term as the pace of change increases?
  • What are risk and reward trade-offs of trying to achieve a desired ROA today versus trying to protect a minimum net worth ratio for the future?
  • What does each modeling methodology tell us – or not tell us?
    • Net interest income (static and dynamic)
    • NEV (including OAS, stochastic, and the NCUA Supervisory Test)
    • Long-term net worth at risk
  • What are the top 10 observations from model validations?
  • What are the fundamental risks and rewards of different investments?
  • What are best practices for creating and using loan and deposit modeling assumptions?
  • What is important to know about new rules, regulations, and supervisory guidance related to interest rate risk (IRR) management?

You’ll work in teams using case studies of real credit unions. We’ll quickly test decisions you’d consider if you were managing these credit unions and you’ll see how your decisions could change the financial performance and risk profiles of your case studies. You will leave the session better equipped to make business decisions.

The Next Step: Connecting A/LM with Strategy

CLASS FULL:  Please contact us to be added to the waiting list. 

There is less and less room for error in the financial services industry; the consequences of not asking the right questions have become more severe. This one-day course will focus on questions to ask when contemplating key strategic decisions.

Such questions include:

  • What are advanced techniques to create efficient balance sheet strategies that enable us to optimize ROA today and remain within our established risk limits?
  • How can we calculate our strategic net worth requirements in order to communicate risks to net worth in totality?
  • What are business model implications that credit unions need to consider with regard to CECL?
  • What are important decisions that need to be made when developing concentration risk limits?
  • What questions should we consider when quantifying our liquidity needs?
  • What are strategies for creating long-term financial forecasts?
  • What are credit unions being asked by examiners about their A/LM process?
  • What questions should we be asking when considering derivatives to manage interest rate risk?

Throughout the course, there will be opportunities to discuss specific questions, issues, and decisions you may be considering.
