Accolade helps credit unions develop a sound Asset/Liability Management (ALM) program that enables them to maximize their financial performance while managing their interest rate risk (IRR). In addition to sound ALM practices, recent regulatory guidance put forth by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA), many credit unions are now required to implement an IRR policy as part of their ALM program. This is where Accolade steps in. We provide cost effective custom analysis, strategies, reporting and other tools to help credit unions manage its ALM program with limited demands of time and expertise of its staff.
Accolade offers two levels of service, ALMonitor and corpAnalytics. ALMonitor is geared for credit unions with a less complex balance sheet while corpAnalytics caters to credit unions with higher concentration of long-term assets or rate-sensitive deposits.
