Impact of Changing Rates on 2019 Planning
Scary to say, but the end of the year is quickly approaching. In addition to the holidays that are right around the corner, another thing that happens in the fourth quarter are last minute inquiries we get from institutions that need to do a year-end balance sheet management strategy. We always try to accommodate, but in some cases, there is simply not enough time. Our advice for any institution that thinks there is even a slight possibility of needing to conduct a year-end loan strategy is to start RIGHT NOW. Slight possibilities can become certainties before you know it, which is why putting yourself in a nimble position can pay big dividends. FTN Financial Capital Assets Corporation’s (“Capital Assets’”) Strategy Menu Analysis is just the tool to help you identify all your options and put you in a position to act quickly if the need should arise.
