Optimizing your Swap Program: Growing Earnings in 2022 and Beyond

Monday, January 31 | 10:30 to 11:10 a.m. MST

More and more banks are using interest rate swaps in their commercial lending business to win long-term fixed-rate deals. Yet many banks choose to limit their interaction with these powerful tools at a tremendous opportunity cost to their bottom line. In this session, attendees hear from two bank executives who overcame some familiar areas of resistance to transform their swap programs, opening new doors to enhance earnings while keeping balance sheet risk in check.
