Webinar looks at exams for liquidity, interest-rate risks for credit unions

How examinations are conducted for credit unions on liquidity and interest-rate risks is the subject of an Aug. 14 webinar hosted by the federal regulator of credit unions, including a focus about how different credit union business models need “customized approaches.”

In a release Tuesday, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) announced the one-hour webinar, which is offered without charge. Registration is now open for the event, the agency said.

NCUA noted that both liquidity and interest-rate risks are among its supervisory priorities for 2019, which are reflected in the event’s discussion topics: interest-rate risk supervision; management ability to meet liquidity needs; and regulatory requirements for liquidity and contingency funding needs.

How different credit union business models require customized approaches toward achieving financial objectives while effectively managing risk rounds out the topic areas.

The agency said leading the discussion will be John Nilles and Robert Bruneau, senior capital market specialists with NCUA’s office of examination and insurance capital markets division. Participating will be Charles Valenti, chief executive officer of Del Norte Credit Union of Santa Fe, N.M.; and Jeremy Ebert, vice president and treasurer of Wings Financial Credit Union of Apple Valley, Minn.
