Solving the Deposit Dilemma with M&A
(and the Right Analytics)
Kamal Mustafa, Chairman & CEO, Invictus Group
Community bankers have seen it all in the last decade, as an unprecedented monetary policy reshaped their balance sheets. Each phase of the ever-shifting banking environment offered a new challenge and a new opportunity, whether it was to grow loans in a flat yield curve, or to chase deposits as interest rates returned. But with such swings, operational adjustments take too long, leaving banks headed in the wrong direction just as the fiscal and political environment shifts again. Attendees of this session will learn how to use M&A with the right analytics that can quantify events that have never happened before and adapt to existing and unexpected conditions.
