Liquidity Risk is normally a crucial issue in a banking crisis, however, during the 2007-2010 period, Liquidity has not been as difficult for us as we may have thought. There are many reasons for this, but number one is the fact that today’s community bankers simply have a better understanding of the various techniques for raising both retail deposits and wholesale funds. What does make this crisis a bit different is the relative pricing efficiencies in the wholesale or non-core funding arena these days and our session will focus on how bankers can avoid those difficult examiner discussions about the use of FHLB Advances and Brokered Deposits. It’s all about process and we will provide guidance on what needs to be in your ALCO Policy as it relates to wholesale funding. We will also explore the April 2010 Liquidity and Funds Management Guidance to ensure your bank is up to speed on those requirements. Finally, we will provide specific guidance on both Ratio Analysis and creating your Contingency Funding Plan and will review a sample CFP.
