8th Annual CFO Symposium


May 2-3, 2019 - Rosen Shingle Creek, Orlando, Florida

The role of the bank CFO, controller, treasurer or cashier is tougher than ever. Financial strategies are continually evolving in an effort to determine the best path for achieving earnings. Whether it is growing your loan portfolio or simply finding new fee income, the challenge to create acceptable ROA and ROE performance is as difficult as we have seen for nearly 20 years.

This symposium will discuss critical success issues with CFOs, CEOs, Board Members and other senior bank officers who are interested in enhancing their organization’s profitability in 2019 and beyond. The importance of reliable tools and techniques is crucial to achieving this goal. Among other presentation topics this symposium will focus on current banking and industry issues, accounting and financial reporting developments, mergers and acquisitions, relative value opportunities, IT risk management and investments. The "take away's" from this event will make it well worth your time, energy and money to attend. 

Who Should Attend? This program is specifically designed for bank CFOs, but bank presidents, CEOs and directors would benefit from the curriculum as well.

Ryan Hayhurst, Managing Director, The Baker Group
Over the last several years, loan demand has outpaced deposit growth and has left many banks with their tightest liquidity levels since before the financial crisis. Furthermore, banks are now feeling increased pressure to pay up for deposits or face the risk of deposit runoff. Regulators have taken notice and continue to focus on liquidity levels and liquidity risk management practices during their examination process. This session will look at current liquidity trends in the banking industry and compare the various funding options available to determine the best liability strategy using a marginal cost of funds analysis.  Best practices will also be presented to help comply with the heightened regulatory scrutiny on liquidity risk management.  Finally, attendees with receive institutions specific data and analysis to help them better understand their liquidity position and how it compares to peers.
