Event Description

Understanding the Fixed Income Portfolio Considerations for Community Banks

Fixed income markets have seen a thirty year bull market beginning with Volcker"s annihilation of inflation in the early 1980s.  Now we face at best a flat, low interest rate scenario, and at worst a bear market that will erode the value of community banks" investment portfolios.  Hoarding cash until interest rates increase erodes current income.  However, bonds with noticeable yields will lose value the most as interest rates increase.  This session by expert speaker Tally Ferguson CFA explores the current vs. future income trade-off and offers tools to help Treasurer evaluate recommendations made by their bond and investment advisors.

Examples of topics that will be examined during this audio conference include the following:

  • Review the yield curve - what informs the shape of the yield curve and how does the market compensate investors for "going further out" on the yield curve?
  • Understand fixed income bond valuation - what drives value? How does the yield curve inform bond value?  What measures bond risk and what affects this measure?
  • Learn about "bond yield"-what is it and what determines the yield?
  • Explore risk trade-offs --  what are the trade-offs between credit, liquidity and interest rate risks, and how can we measure these trade-offs?

You will get:

  • Quick-reference check-list to run against bond swap recommendations
  • Tips for understanding bond valuation techniques
  • Excel based bond stress test formulae

Training Objective:

  • Interest rate theory
  • Practical Bond Valuation techniques
  • Interest, liquidity and Credit risk trade-off surprises
  • Guidelines for improving your relationship with your bond financial advisors

Who Should Attend

  • Small bank Treasurers and CFOs
  • Market risk managers
  • Bond and financial advisors to community banks
  • Compliance Managers

Ask a question at the Q&A session following the live event and get advice unique to your situation, directly from our expert speaker.
