Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases this months edition of the Bank Treasury Newsletter Chart Deck, which details how the Feds rate cuts have negatively impacted on bank net interest margins for large and small banks.
The chart deck also discusses how financial institutions of all sizes are adapting their balance sheets for the prospect of interest rates remaining lower for longer, shifting from floating rate to fixed rate earning assets. Given the sudden steepening in the front end of the yield curve, bank treasurers have a golden opportunity to add duration and protect net interest margins from lower rates.
