Why Concentration Risk?

Many credit unions struggle with satisfying the requirements of NCUA’s Letter to Credit Union No. 10-CU-03 on Concentration Risk, and the related FFIEC Advisory on Interest Rate Risk Management memo. The Rochdale Group will deliver a comprehensive review and analysis and suggested changes to assist you in not only satisfying the regulator, but delivering portfolio clarity to drive organizational value and avoid excessive and unforeseen losses. Efforts to truly manage concentration risk must be assembled and managed broadly across the organization and entail activities including strategic planning, policy limitations, asset liability management capabilities, risk scenario analysis, ALLL methodologies, enterprise risk management processes, and portfolio analytics. A comprehensive plan that connects the dots can lead to advanced notice of possible problems and early refinement of lending and portfolio restructuring efforts. The Rochdale Group possesses the experience and skills to deliver excellent risk analysis and monitoring processes that your credit union can rely on going forward.
