On Dec 12, the FDIC announced a critical conference call to review the optional CBLR framework that will directly impact banks with under $10B in assets. The timing of this important for ALL BankersHub customers as we already have this upcoming webinar scheduled on January to apprise all banking professionals on what they need to know from this pending legislation in addition to the most current information coming from this conference call on December 18.

This exclusive BankersHub January 11 financial webinar will review the proposed community bank leverage ratio (CBLR) released by the federal banking agencies on November 20. The CBLR would no longer require banks smaller than $10 billion to calculate or report capital components of risk-based capital, tier 1 leverage, total capital, or risk-weighted assets. This community banking webinar highlights key benefits under the proposal and outlines strategic planning opportunities for affected firms.

It cannot be stressed enough how critical this information is to all institutions under $10 Billion and we encourage everyone to consider registering for this exclusive BankersHub event to get updated on the status of CBLR.
