Winning the Battle for Deposits

With interest rates continuing to rise and deposit competition becoming even more fierce as banks of all sizes angle for a larger piece of the pie, many banks need to rethink their customer acquisition strategy and their approach to funding. Opportunities abound for community banks that shift their liability mix to play to their competitive strengths.

In this webinar, four industry experts shared their thoughts on successful strategies and new deposit-gathering opportunities on the horizon. They highlighted key (but perhaps lesser-known) provisions in the pending regulatory relief bill, that, if approved by the House and signed by President Trump, would change the desired balance sheet composition for banks across the nation and provide significant opportunities to win the entire share of wallet of many corporate, nonprofit, and governmental depositors.
