Catalyst Corporate Federal Credit Union’s Mark DeBree Demystifies Liquidity Risk Management at MAXX 2018


Mark DeBree

For many credit unions, managing liquidity is a bit like walking a tight rope: the goal is to maintain enough liquidity without holding too much, which can result in lower earnings and growth capital. It can seem like an almost impossible task.

But Mark DeBree, Vice President Asset Liability Management Services with Catalyst Corporate Federal Credit Union can help.

He’s a speaker at Northwest Credit Union Association’s annual convention, MAXX 2018, and will share his expertise in the Impact Session, “Effective Liquidity Risk Management/Stress Testing,” scheduled for 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 18.

Credit union analysts and treasury professionals won’t want to miss DeBree’s discussion on liquidity risk management, including stress testing in traditional and non-traditional scenarios. The session is approved for CPE credit.

“Mark will help our members leave with a better understanding of liquidity risk management,” said NWCUA Vice President of Strategic Resources, Jason Smith. “He’s also available to consult with credit unions one-on-one to address their specific needs.”

Catalyst works with credit unions across the United States, providing core financial services, including payment and technology services, card services, investment accounts, and back-office support. Catalyst leverages the volumes of hundreds of credit unions to negotiate favorable pricing, and continually invests in the information technology and infrastructure necessary to minimize costs and labor for credit unions.

“Credit unions are facing uncertain times,” said Smith. “Catalyst is a long-term partner with NWCUA, and we’re excited to connect credit unions with a highly knowledgeable and experienced source to help them through the complexities of liquidity management.”
