Interest rate derivatives are a powerful tool in any ALCO Committee's toolkit.

For this reason, they are more and more common at regional and community financial institutions.

ALCOs use these tools to smooth earnings, protect against adverse changes in interest rates, and enable growth.

Starting with a few introductory concepts, they will proceed to more intermediate topics like the implications of LIBOR discontinuation and the forthcoming portfolio layer method.

The following topics will be highlighted during this presentation:
• Basics of hedging strategies
• Basics of hedge accounting
• Implications of the discontinuation of LIBOR
• Upcoming changes to hedge accounting and the impact upon strategies
