Banker Peer Exchange Session: Performance & Profitability: What's working for you?

Managing Your Default Pipeline
Dr. Thomas J. Parliment, Chairman /CEO, Parliment Consulting Services, Inc.,
At the request of the FDIC, Dr. Tom has been running a $300mm "troubled" bank for the last year. In this presentation, you'll hear a thought provoking (and humorous) analysis of the credit quality analytics that Dr. Tom had to develop for the bank. The migration and vintage loan analysis that he developed had to be relatively simple and capable of being used by a regular community bank. No consultants or expensive outsourcing… just you, your database and an excel spreadsheet… can get the job done! It's real… it's relevant…best of all….it can be used in your bank. Dr. Tom will help you better identify your at-risk loans, get a better understanding of migration analysis, understand the essentials of vintage analysis and the implications for ALLL analysis and to manage the sufficiency of capital.

Contingency Funding-Have You Taken Your Plan to the Next Level?
Karl Nelson, CEO, KPN Consulting
You've drafted your funding plan, complete with sample forms, templates and checklists-it's even gone to the board and been blessed. But, when was the last time you dusted it off, kicked the tires so-to-speak to make sure it remains representative of how you bank does business. If you haven't looked at your existing policy and ensured that it is current, you could be faced with the regulators telling you it doesn't meet current regulatory expectations and requirements. This session is designed to show you the 'what and how' of taking your CFP to the next level.
