But, let’s not stop there. When an entire organization benefits from relationship development, we need to find effective ways to engage the entire organization in relationship development. Everyone plays an important role in that process, so take the time to discover and identify how each job position at your bank will contribute to successful relationship development. This session examines how banks can direct their culture and business practices directly at customers and their long-term loyalty. It’s no longer acceptable to only take ownership of your daily tasks. Every employee must take ownership in the customers’ relationship tenure and satisfaction.   Target Audience:  Everyone on the bank’s team Read More

Presenter:  Dave Koch, Abrigo This 90-minute program will be presented live on: July 8, 2:00-3:30 p.m. Central Time Recording available through: October 8, 2020 Price: $275   Think of “banking” as a manufacturing factory.  Like any manufacturing facility, the first key to success is access consistent supply and cost controllable funding.  For financial institutions, the raw materials used to produce our assets (loans to our market) are core deposits.  Historically, this raw material was more plentiful from consumers and businesses and was reasonably priced.  Today, competition for “core deposits” is fierce, and in some cases, out of control.  In the meantime, strong loan demand has raised loan\deposit ratios for many FI’s into the danger zone creating more unstable actions in the deposit market.  Consider the impact of digital\online competitors offers and the changing demographics use of technology to mine information and you find that depositors are presented many alternative offers that may leave your institution on the sideline as a spectator.   So, who’s in charge of funding at your institution?  When new market demands arise, who ensures that you have a proper response?   What is your institution’s plan for managing future funding needs?  How did rising rates impact your historically “low cost” funding and overall funding mix?  Did your trends in account openings meet your future needs?  Will that trend continue?  How have your depositors and competitors responded?  If funding is the lifeblood of our factory, shouldn’t we have a more disciplined control structure?   In this interactive, hands-on session we combine examples with your data to help you lay the groundwork for a funding plan.  We will discuss and define: How to determine the most desirable asset demands, How to leverage your core deposit results\assumptions for improved financial performance, Determine and define product and pricing strategies for each funding sector Best practices to manage funding costs and risk management needs Which wholesale funding sources offer protection and profit given your risk profile   Our objective is to help you define realistic, profitable and measurable growth and development goals to support your asset and capital growth needs.   Target Audience:  CEOs, CFOs, ALCO members, controllers, chief risk officer, chief retail, funding officers Read More

Violation of either regulation can result in significant penalties.  And not adequately thinking through the process could also create Equal Credit Opportunity Act (Regulation B) issues for the bank. However, it is possible to grow the bank and stay within the regulatory framework – it just takes some planning. This program is designed to help you accomplish that goal. This program will address: The RESPA Requirements – Section 8 violations and how to avoid them Compensating your mortgage lenders within the Regulation Z limitations Compensating other lender types Assuring the decisions you make do not create a fair lending nightmare – sometimes “one size” does NOT fit “all” Target Audience: This program addresses the real management issues involved in the creation and maintenance of compensation programs, and is designed for senior management, loan managers, and human resources professional.
