The National Association of Federal Credit Unions' (NAFCU) Feb. 3 webcast will discuss how credit unions can maximize earnings while staying within risk tolerance levels.

The webcast will be broadcast live from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST from the NAFCU studio at its headquarters in Arlington, Va.

Both NAFCU members and nonmembers can call (800) 344-5580 to register, or visit www.nafcu.org/risktolerance for more information. The deadline for early registration savings is Jan 27.

Emily M. Hollis, partner for ALM First Financial Advisors, will be the featured speaker.

"The Federal Financial Institutions Council recently released a document reminding institutions of supervisory expectations for sound practices to manage interest rate risk. The range of risk taken within the financial industry was immense," she said.

On the webcast, Hollis will help credit unions assess their ability to take on additional mortgage loans and more credit risk, as well as appropriate levels of risk and whether to increase their portfolio yields through diversification into more complex securities.
