Thursday, April 28, 2022, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Conference slides

Commercial Banks face a myriad of risks, especially in today’s environment.  Keeping track, mitigating, and managing risks has become a major focus of commercial banks internally.  An emerging risk that has garnered the attention and focus of the regulatory environment is Climate Risk, and all that it entails.  Regulators are now poised to include this risk in its examination routines, at least for banks over $100 billion in assets.  However, with the emergence of this focus, the writing is on the wall that Climate Risk will become a challenge for all banks, as has been the history with other risks.  Get ahead of the curve by joining this “thought-provoking” and informative conference to plan and prepare for this  for the future.
