CU Learning TRAXX: Discuss the Impact Climate Change Poses to Financial Services and How to Use Data to Boost Lending


On Monday, Nov. 2, Northwest credit unions will come together for four information-packed CU Learning TRAXX sessions delving into just-in-time topics, including the impact of climate change on the financial services industry and ways to boost lending through efficient data utilization.

Scientists have cautioned against the effects of climate change for decades. In recent years, those ominous warnings have increased in severity, with researchers releasing frequent findings on what’s in store if things don’t change soon.

During CU Learning TRAXX’s Nov. 2 Enterprise Risk Management session: Fire, Flood, and Drought in the Northwest: The Risks of Climate Change to Financial Services, credit unions will learn first-hand about the potential risks climate change poses the financial services industry.

This just-in-time session, led by risk management expert, Hans Helbekkmo, comes just weeks after a series of devastating wildfires ravaged the Northwest in September, forcing several credit unions to close branches and leaving thousands displaced and without homes.

Helbekkmo is a partner with McKinsey & Co., a management consulting firm based in San Francisco. He leads McKinsey’s work in enterprise risk management in North America, and has extensive experience advising financial institutions on risk management challenges, including risk arising from credit, market, insurance, climate, and operational sources.

Using Data to Jumpstart Lending

In the current economic climate, how can credit unions maintain strong lending amid high share growth and low loan demand? The answer lies in effective data utilization.

Join the Nov. 2 Financial Strategy session: Using Data to Jumpstart Lending, to hear from analytics expert, Joe Agostinelli, on ways credit unions can improve how they use data and find out how digital transformation leaders pioneered data utilization with great success. Attendees of the live session will be able to earn one CPE credit.

Agostinelli is the VP of Analytics and Insights at Vibrant Credit Union, based in Moline, Illinois.

Prior to this role, he spent three-plus years as an analyst with Raddon, four years in the market research industry, and four-plus years at BAI as a senior analyst on the research team.
