2019 Financial Management Conference - Hedging Bets

Register Button

The FHLB Cincinnati is pleased to invite you and all Fifth District members to its 2019 Financial Management Conference, Hedging Bets: Strategies for a Changing Market. The conference will be held Tuesday, August 6th, and Wednesday, August 7th, at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, OH. The conference is free to all FHLB District members.

Our annual summer conference provides our members with an opportunity to hear from industry experts on a variety of important topics that are both relevant and timely. This year, our conference theme “Hedging Bets” brings into focus the longevity of our current economic cycle and its potential implications. Financial managers need to make decisions at this point of the economic cycle as to whether going short or extending out makes the most sense. Perhaps "Hedging Bets" is the best choice. We are optimistic that our conference speakers will help frame the decisions that lie ahead and provide thought provoking options for our members to consider.

Welcome Reception

We will begin Monday, August 5th at 5:00 p.m. at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel in The Rue Reolon Room with a social networking event that includes cocktails and heavy hor d’oeuvres. We hope to see many of you at this kickoff event.

Day One

Tuesday, August 6th is a general session day. FHLB President and Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Howell, will open the conference with an overview of the state of our industry and how the FHLB can assist our members in "Hedging Bets." It will conclude with outside speakers offering their insights and tactics on how to maintain success in the current economic climate.

Evening Festivities

Please join us Tuesday evening at Great American Ball Park as the Cincinnati Reds take on the Los Angeles Angels. Each conference registrant will receive a complimentary ticket to the game. We have reserved The Handlebar at the Riverfront Club to accommodate all attendees. This event is a great opportunity to network and enjoy a baseball game with both peers and FHLB staff. 

Day Two

Wednesday, August 7th will begin with an 8:30 a.m. hot breakfast and a presentation from Tami Hendrickson, SVP, Treasurer, of the FHLB Cincinnati. Tami will discuss what we are doing at the FHLB to prepare for the transition away from LIBOR. Her comments will also include thoughts on how our members should be approaching LIBOR transition. The remainder of Wednesday morning includes sessions that focus on technology and asset liability management. You are welcome to attend those sessions that best fit the needs and situation at your institution. Day two concludes with lunch at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel in The Pavilion Ballroom.
