Your ALM Model Validation

What you can expect from an independent ALM Model Validation

Thursday, May 9, 2019 ~ 2:00 pm (ET)

Due to more robust asset liability management (ALM) interest rate risk (IRR) regulations, greater risk management expectations by regulators and changing interest rate environments – credit unions are being asked to conduct more frequent ALM-IRR model validations (or to conduct a more comprehensive validation compared to prior analysis).

This webinar will review how an ALM model validation allows you to use the results to improve your ALM-IRR modeling process, strengthen your IRR program and ultimately improve your ALM decision-making.
