Presenter: Rob Johnson, executive vice president/principal, c. myers

Description: Lending is the primary economic engine for most credit unions. As with any economic engine, lending does not come without risks. Sector risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, and liquidity risk, just to name of few, are all intermingled. Layering on consumer preferences and competition, changing in what feels like a blink of an eye, significantly ups the ante to advance the management of the lending economic engine.  

This course focuses on how to evolve understanding and communication of these risks so that decision-makers can be more forward-thinking and agile in managing their lending economic engine.

Who should attend:  CFOs and other C-Suite

Key Takeaways:

  • Risks do not exist in silos. It is necessary for decision-makers to prioritize their risk concerns to better manage risks and opportunities
  • Learn new ways to communicate, in advance, how the profitability profile and risks can change so that decision-makers can be better armed with strategic options as the world around them changes
  • Using data most credit unions already have available, see easy ways to uncover lending opportunities
