On February 3, the FDIC issued FIL-10-2016 announcing the release of updated videos on interest rate risk. The new videos are intended to provide directors, management, and staff of financial institutions with a better understanding of interest rate risk and how to manage it. The FDIC previously released an interest rate video made specifically for directors, and a series of more technical videos tailored to management and staff responsible for interest rate risk management. The FDIC’s updated videos (i) reflect recent industry data and expand on relevant topics; (ii) emphasize the FDIC’s expectation that institutions prudently manage interest rate risk; and (iii) address industry trends, board and management responsibilities, types of interest rate risk, various risk measurement systems, key modeling assumptions, internal controls, and independent review. Finally, according to the FDIC, “[f]inancial institution balance sheets continue to reflect a heightened mismatch between asset and funding maturities that, coupled with tighter net interest margins, have left financial institutions more vulnerable to rising interest rates.”
