Webinar series: Building an effective interest rate risk management framework

When it comes to Interest Rate Risk (IRR) management, one thing is certain: Interest rates may rise of fall, altering how financial institutions approach the process. While some expect rising rates, and others expect a plateau, financial institutions should have a framework in place that can stand firm in any condition.

How strong is your IRR foundation – its building blocks, structural integrity and governance?

MountainView Financial Solutions, a Situs company, is pleased to announce a 2019 community institution’s webinar track designed to help build an effective framework for IRR management. Over the course of the year, we will provide four webinars that address core fundamentals relating to IRR management, including measurement and analysis; key modeling components; assumptions testing; and governance.

Asset Liability Management (ALM) managers, finance executives, IRR managers and risk management professionals from community banking institutions and credit unions are encouraged to attend.

Our first webinar will start with the foundation.
