How Financial Institutions Can Improve Their Net Interest Margin
With a more volatile yield curve expected and continued competition for loans, net interest margins (NIM) may continue to compress for many financial institutions. The key to achieve NIM expansion involves strong loan pricing discipline and a full “tool kit” of financial products to harvest every possible basis point.


In this webinar we will look at key aspects of the balance sheet and how a financial institution can secure those critical additional basis points, including:
– Loan Portfolio – The pros and cons of alternative strategies that enable an FI to provide long-term fixed-rate loans without the interest rate risk to their balance sheet
– Investment Portfolio – Explore the opportunities to improve bond trade execution
– Wholesale Funding – How to use short-term FHLB advances with interest rate swaps to lock in desirable funding
