The UBPR: Understanding Peer Group Comparison to Improve Bank Performance
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm MT

Understanding bank ratios is critical to evaluating and improving your bank’s performance – and nothing provides better information than the Uniform Bank Performance Report (UBPR). Strategies for improving bank performance are important in all economic cycles and this webinar will address relatively new issues facing community bankers. You will learn about the critical component of independence – shareholder value, and the most important measure of shareholder return: return on equity. Do you understand how your bank compares to other local and national peer institutions? Use this information in strategic planning or daily decision-making to add profitability, improve liquidity, improve asset quality, increase shareholder value, understand the non-maturity account surge, etc. This pragmatic program will provide information you can use immediately and offers excellent training for the board of directors in overseeing bank performance.

NOTE: Please have a copy of your most recent UBPR available during the webinar so you can compare the presenter’s comments with your bank’s numbers.
