Feeling the Liquidity Squeeze?
The Critical Steps to Improve Your Liquidity Position

Loan growth is outpacing deposit growth. Loans are becoming a higher percentage of total assets. Wholesale funding levels are increasing. Undeniably, liquidity is under pressure. This session will address the changing liquidity landscape in our industry, and what every financial institution should be doing to develop a “best practice” approach in liquidity management.

We will start by reviewing industry trends and what lies ahead for the community sector. We will then walk through the critical elements all financial institutions should have in their liquidity management reports (both operational and contingency). Finally, the session will conclude with real life case studies which highlight strategies to increase margin while managing liquidity risk.


  • Optimize your liquidity yield
  • Regulatory guidance: framework, approaches, risk integration, governance
  • Focus on total liquidity and not just “liquid” assets
  • Become comfortable with higher levels of wholesale funding
  • Developing a robust contingency funding plan
  • Case studies to improve margin and manage liquidity


This seminar is designed for CEOs, CFOs, Board Members, Executive Management dealing with Asset/Liability Management, Investment Officers.
