We know you want to protect your margin. Optimize your balance sheet. Grow your business by keeping up with your customers’ demands. Chatham is the financial risk management partner who can empower you to meet these goals. We offer solutions to all types of institutions, from community banks and credit unions to larger regional banks, helping them manage their asset-liability risks, optimize their balance sheet, and provide long-term, fixed-rate financing options to commercial customers. At the same time, we help with all hedge accounting and regulatory compliance needs.

With decades of experience and partnerships with more than 190 financial institutions, we have a deep understanding of your business. Whether we’re offering strategic advice on balance sheet risk management, helping facilitate a borrower-facing swap program, or supporting you with Dodd-Frank and other regulations, we’ve got the knowledge and the know-how to help you be successful.

Many of our hedge accountants are alumni of Big Four accounting firms and the FASB. They offer comprehensive hedge accounting support, including hedge designation memos, effectiveness testing, valuations, journal entries, and disclosures. And you can leverage our in-house regulatory advisory team to negotiate ISDA agreements, address Dodd-Frank requirements, and meet other regulatory requirements.
