    A Note from Chris

    Over the past several months, Corporate Central has taken great strides to strengthen and modernize how we represent ourselves and promote what it is we do for our members, potential members, partners and the media. You may already be following us on LinkedIn or viewing our videos on YouTube, you may have even seen some of our promotions and articles on credit union industry websites. Now we are very excited to announce a soon-to-be launched new website! Our new site will have a clean design, convenient navigation, improved functionality and enhanced rich content designed to keep you informed of the latest news and information from your Corporate. Following the launch of the Corporate Central site, we will also be launching new sites for our "Family of CUSOs" EmergiFi, InterLutions and QuantyPhi. All 3 CUSOs now have LinkedIn pages as well so I invite you to follow us!

Effective ALM Benchmarking

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 12:00 PM - 12:30 PM Central Time (CST)

Information gained from benchmarking allows credit unions to determine how efficient their investment decision-making is relative to the amount of risk they are occurring. Benchmarking is an ongoing process in which credit unions continuously seek the improvement of their financial health.

Proper ALM benchmarking can assist CEOs, CFOs and other credit union leaders to define the optimal strategy for their credit union. This enables them to identify where the investment decisions lead, lag or remain at par with other portfolio selections. In addition, benchmarking provides the basis by which the credit unions can articulate key investment options, helping to identify what types of securities to build in their portfolios.

Join the QuantyPhi team for a 30-minute educational webinar about the effective use of ALM Benchmarking. No cost to attend.
