Increase your confidence in managing your credit union's assets and liabilities through the foundational knowledge of asset-liability management (ALM). Gain knowledge through five sessions culminating in a case study exercise that asks the attendee to put it all together and apply the information they have learned. After the case study exercise, Rochdale will cover how ALM connects to enterprise risk management (ERM).

This eSchool is endorsed by CUNA Finance Council.

Who Should Attend

This eSchool is beneficial for CEO, CFO, risk vice president, controller, comptroller, treasurer, finance analyst, finance manager and board members who sit on asset-liability committees (ALCO).

Session includes:

  • Non-maturity deposits
  • Reinvestment rates
  • Prepayment speeds
  • Early redemptions
  • Static balance sheet

December 10, 2021 // 10:00-11:00 a.m. CT

Integrating ALM into Enterprise Risk Management (ERM)
December 13, 2021 // 10:00-11:00 a.m. CT
Speaker: Brian Hague

Armed with an understanding of ALM, you'll explore how ALM fits within the broader perspective of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). Attendees will learn how to use ALM to balance and align risk-taking activity across the credit union. We will also discuss how ALM information can be used to inform the ERM process and how ERM intelligence can improve the effectiveness of ALM.
