MnCUN and the Baker Group Present: Interest Rate Risk and Investment Strategies Seminar, March 21
The global pandemic set into motion a series of historically unprecedented economic policies. Massive amounts of liquidity and stimulus from policymakers enabled a fast recovery, but at what financial cost? The side effect of those “easy money” conditions has been 40 year-high inflation that now must be fought through highly restrictive Fed behavior. Balance sheet managers have been left to deal with the resulting large swings in interest rate and liquidity risks. Quickly increasing cost of funds, stubborn loan rates, and ever-tightening margins are just a few of the most common worries for 2023. More than ever, it is critical that credit union leadership take a whole balance sheet approach, as understanding and utilizing wholesale markets (asset and funding) could significantly reduce some of these pressures. This seminar will examine the challenges now faced by CEOs, CFOs, and investment officers who must navigate the next phase of these uncharted waters.

As a credit union, your goal is to help your members achieve all of their financial needs, wants, and dreams. To reach this goal you need a team that is consistently promoting the products and services that will help your members save time and money, make more money, and bring greater levels of financial security to their life. The only problem is the member service your team provides is best described as “Order Taking” rather than “Value Creating.” Join us for two or three-day Credit Union Sales Intensive Workshops starting Feb. 14, 2023, facilitated by Nick Brown, member services guru from SalesCU.
The Credit Union Sales Training workshop is designed for a wide variety of credit union leaders and departments including branch, lending, and contact centers, regional and senior sales leaders, training and development professionals and even marketing staff.
The Credit Union Sales Training workshops will be offered throughout the year and will be conducted over the span of two or three days. Only 35 seats available per workshop. All workshops are conducted virtually via Zoom meetings.
Please see the Credit Union Sales Intensive Workshop webpage more information.
