Breakout V: Protect Earnings and Capital Using Derivatives

Investors compensate bank managers for smooth, predictable earnings, asset growth and capital management. Changing interest rate environments impact each of these metrics. Banks have ways to manage changing interest rates, but banks often lack the most powerful and flexible tool: derivatives. Bankers sometimes shy away from using hedging strategies due to a lack of experience, a cautious board and concerns about accounting. Attend this session to hear how bankers have overcome these areas of resistance to add this tool to protect earnings and capital.
