Hot Topics in Bank M&A 

Mergers and acquisitions in the banking industry are topics of continual interest. M&A activity creates both opportunities and risks. The most significant of these are the opportunities for rationalizing branches and the risks inherent in human resources and culture. During this webinar recording Crowe experts will provide perspective on current M&A trends, how to avoid people risks and how to realize value from acquired branches.

What Banks are doing to Improve Operational Efficiency

Trends in customer behavior, technology, products, economic conditions and competition are changing the economics and costs of many bank functions. With continued pressure on profit growth, it is increasingly important for banks to operate more efficiently. In this recorded presentation, Crowe Horwath will review ways banks are improving operational efficiency.

Using Risk Management Strategies to Increase Your Bottom Line

Bankers know that not all enterprise risk is addressed with their commercial insurance package. Emerging risks such as cybersecurity and reputation risk create significant exposures for banks of all sizes. At the same time, commercial insurance carriers are pushing banks to higher deductibles, and there remain significant gaps in coverage and exclusions in commercial insurance policies. This creates unfunded risks which must be evaluated as a part of any bank’s enterprise risk management process. A growing number of banks throughout the country are forming captive insurance companies to cover these unfunded risks. When structured properly, the formation of a captive by a bank holding company can result in a permanent increase to earnings per share of up to 5%. View this webinar recording to learn more.
