Drought Hits Community Banks' Deposit Farm
Get ready for return of liquidity challenges
by Jeff Reynolds, Darling Consulting Group
 
According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, there are just over 900 bank charters for institutions between $1 billion-$15 billion in assets at the end of 2012 that are still active today. Of those, 15% had loan-to-deposit ratios greater than 95% back at the end of 2012. Today, 33% are over that mark. For that entire pool of banks, the average loan-to- deposit ratio has increased from 78% to 87%.

As a result, more banks are struggling to find funding at the margin to continue to feed the loan machine. Perhaps to make sure the horse stays in the barn this time around, the regulatory community has recently placed an increased emphasis on liquidity.  Consequently, deposit gathering is once again a top agenda item for the community bank sector.

No End In Sight: How to grow profits beyond end-to-end commercial lending
by Terry Renoux
 
By viewing the commercial lending process as a linear progression with a definite beginning and end, bankers miss the opportunity to proactively continue relationships with their business customers and pursue new revenue that drives opportunities beyond the life of the loan. 
 
Instead, bankers should consider how to renew or continue their relationships with business.  Banks can actively monitor and manage relationships after a loan closes as they evaluate and consult around risk ratings, cash flow and credit scores. This helps banks to bolster business relationships and proactively push relevant offerings at the right times.  So, how is it done? Click  HERE  to learn more.
