How are you managing your interest rate risk?

With Portfolio AdvantEDGE™, bankers can effectively monitor and manage their investment portfolio’s yield, interest rate risk, and cash flows.

Bankers’ Bank Investment Department has developed a new custom set of advanced analytic reports specifically designed to help community bankers manage their investment portfolio and meet current interest rate risk requirements.

Multiple simulations are utilized to show how changes in interest rates (+/- 100,200,300,400 basis points) affect the cash flow ladder of the portfolio.  Changes in key metrics like effective duration, average life, and market value highlight how potential movements in interest rates affect the risk profile of your portfolio. These results are shown at the individual security level and for the entire portfolio.

To start monitoring your portfolio with Portfolio AdvantEDGE™, contact the Investment Department at 800-955-4468.
