Hot Topic Series Managing the Balance Sheet


Managing the Balance Sheet in an Inflationary Environment

September 2, 2021

2 pm


This session will focus on the next phase of revenue growth. The last 18 months has been an aberration. It is the first time banks have been through a recession and actually grew revenue. The revenue growth was fueled by unsustainable government stimulus programs (forbearance, PPP fees and refi fees). When you strip away these non-organic revenue sources, which are currently coming to an end, we are left with a lack of loan growth and contracting net interest income. These fundamental segments need to get going and it will take some hustle and active management. This session will focus on strategies that community banks are implementing to generate revenue, to combat rising inflation and to set up their bank for long-term success.
