Telecon for community bankers looks at liquidity, funds management trends

Trends in community bank liquidity and funds management (and related supervisory guidance) are on the agenda for a Nov. 6 teleconference hosted by the three federal banking agencies.

The teleconference, aimed at community bankers, is sponsored by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), Federal Reserve, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). It will be held from 2-3 p.m. ET.

According to the FDIC, in its Financial Institution Letter (FIL) 55-2017, in addition to discussing liquidity and funds management trends, the call will review the guidelines included in the 2010 Interagency Policy Statement on Funding and Liquidity Risk Management. Additional topics on the call, FDIC said, will be trends in liquidity and funding; the importance of a strong liquid asset cushion and diversified funding; brokered deposit restrictions; cash flow scenario analysis and sensitivity testing; and, contingency funding planning.

There is no charge for the call; officers and employees of all insured depository institutions are invited to participate, and advance registration is required by Oct. 31.
