The FDIC has released the first video in a new technical assistance series. The first video module covers interest rate risk. Intended for community bank managers, particularly those involved in asset/liability management, the video discusses types of interest rate risk, measurement systems, the assumptions used in interest rate risk models and risk limits and mitigation.
The new series follows a series for new bank directors and another series offering a virtual version of the FDIC’s Directors’ College. Forthcoming technical assistance videos will cover fair lending, appraisals and evaluations, troubled debt restructurings, evaluating municipal securities and flood insurance. More information on the FDIC free video series is available here.
