A case for brokered deposits

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,James Lutter D. James (Jim) Lutter is the Senior Vice President of Trading and Operations at PMA Financial Network and PMA Securities where he oversees PMA Funding, a service of both companies … Web: pmafunding.com Details Over the past decade, following the financial crisis, low interest rates and investor risk aversion fueled large core deposit balances across the banking industry. As interest rates have risen, most credit unions are starting to re-evaluate their deposit funding models. With increased competition, technological changes and greater loan demand, credit unions are seeking out new deposit sources to achieve their strategic goals. With these challenges and opportunities, it is time to rethink the stigma of wholesale funding.  When used appropriately, wholesale funding can be an effective and stable source of deposit funding.As a refresher, the Great Recession of 2008 brought on the need for regulatory review of how credit unions fund their balance sheets. Through Congressional action (The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act), the FDIC was required to conduct a study on the effects of brokered deposits. The “Core and Brokered Deposit” study focused on the role of brokered deposits in the lead up to the Great Recession. The common theme was that troubled credit unions were not utilizing diversified funding sources and were over-reliant on brokered deposits. This enabled rapid loan growth in higher risk assets. The rapid deterioration of asset value (sub-prime housing crisis), coupled with the depth of the recession and the dislocation of inter FI lending exposed the vulnerability of the banking system. The theme coming out of this study was that ALL wholesale/brokered deposits were considered “hot money,” which in times of stress can fuel instability.A major concern with this line of thinking is that it takes a “one-size fits all” approach. The primary focus has been on the “brokered deposit,” and not as much on the source, the “deposit broker.” There are numerous sources that a credit union can take advantage of when receiving brokered deposits and they are not all the same. A few examples of brokered deposit sources include Referral Services, Broker-Dealers, Money Managers, etc. These are considered brokered deposits, but behave differently. For example, in the case of referral services, they typically match advisors or depositors with credit unions. They have a limited relationship with the underlying depositor, thus possess limited knowledge on the depositors investment policy, deposit stability or the impact of stressed situations on the deposits. This differs greatly from that of a Money Manager. The Money Manager is usually involved in establishing a cash flow plan with the depositor, then implementing it based on investment objectives.Brokered deposits can be a good complement to traditional funding when utilized in a prudent manner.  This starts by taking the time to understand the source behind the deposit. Prior to participating in the brokered deposit market, an operating plan/template should be constructed outlining rules of engagement, specifically covering the various sources and types of brokered funding, such as:When should brokered funding be utilized?Establishment of concentration limitsDefining the relationship of the deposit broker to the depositorThe deposit broker needs to be vetted to determine their role in the deposit process and ongoing relationship. The more clarity provided at the onset of engagement will help eliminate unexpected surprises during times of stress   All in all, brokered funding is an integral part of the deposit market place.  It provides stability and fills the voids created during times of volatility in the local depositor base.last_img read more

Kingston District Council to Dispose of Surplus Dredger

first_imgThe Kingston District Council, South Australia, has agreed to dispose of its original cutter suction dredger following a unanimous decision at their September meeting. In making this decision, Mayor Kay Rasheed said that “it simply came down to the fact that the vessel is no longer able to be effectively utilized.”Given the significant increase and change in material accumulation, primarily the seagrass wrack within the Maria Creek, the original dredge is not capable in successfully removing this material, according to the council.This is compounded by the fact that there is no engineering or specifications on the vessel and the environmental impact is unable to appropriately be assessed by the relevant authorities.Disposing of the dredger will provide an opportunity to consolidate marine assets and operate only one, particularly given the council’s current position to focus on a long-term sustainable solution for the boat launching facility at Maria Creek.Mayor Rasheed indicated that this process took a step forward at the September meeting, with the council agreeing to proceed to Stage 1 – detailed concept design.This follows receipt of Tonkin Consulting’s scope of work brief which will see the council seeking quotations for a scientifically proven concept design for alterations to the existing structures.last_img read more

Magic Ribosome Appears as Missing Link

first_img(Visited 38 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A father-daughter team takes on the “selfish gene” concept and considers the ribosome as the “missing link” for lucky LUCA.“What does DNA want?” Meredith Root-Bernstein asks in The Conversation.  “It wants to replicate” is the usual answer, pointed out by her father, Robert Root-Bernstein.  But they notice that DNA does not naturally replicate itself.  It coils up into a ball and resists change.  Case in point:The resting position of DNA is very tightly curled up with its genes inaccessible. Resting DNA is so stable that it can protect its genes for 10,000 years or more, allowing scientists to recover DNA from frozen mammoths. This is not a molecule yearning to disperse its genes, but one that wants to conserve them by remaining curled up in a knot.We reasoned that the cellular structure that wants to copy genes and turn them into the proteins that make up functioning cells is ribosomes. The resting state of a ribosome is: “I’m ready to translate DNA into proteins.” Ribosomes “want” to convert genes into working molecules.So the question should be, “What does a ribosome want?”  Ribosomes have machinery to build things.  They want to make copies of themselves.  So, the father-daughter team reasons, the “selfish gene” concept is wrong.  The missing link to the Last Universal Common Ancestor (LUCA) must be the ribosome.But how could a functional ribosome appear out of primordial soup by chance?  Since they’re anthropomorphizing anyway, here’s their solution:In a recent paper in the Journal of Theoretical Biology, we have shown that rRNA does contain vestiges of the mRNAs, tRNAs and “genes” that encode its own protein structure and function. Ribosomes are not simply the passive translators of genes as described in textbooks. We believe they are the missing link between simple pre-biotic molecules and the single-celled LUCA, the Last Universal Common Ancestor, considered to be the first living thing on Earth.DNA evolved to conserve and protect the information originally encoded in rRNA. Cells and organisms have evolved to optimise the replication of ribosomes, and ribosomes are almost the same across all species. Maybe the selfish ribosome puts a new spin on feeling kinship with other creatures. We are all just different kinds of homes to ribosomes.Given the complexity of a ribosome, it would appear a tall order to expect one to emerge out of a pool of “simple pre-biotic molecules”.  Maybe it’s a spiritual essence about these molecules that gives them a sense of kinship.If you have heard a stupider theory about life than this, give us a call.  Can you imagine the ridicule if a non-Darwinian wrote anything this lame as a “scientific” theory of the origin of life?  Robert is a professor of physiology at Michigan State.  It sounds like he was drunk on Darwine when he wrote this.   What’s even more remarkable is that a journal would publish it.  It goes to show that when people cease believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing; they believe in anything.At least their theory shows that the “selfish gene” concept is unworkable, too.  If you retain any hopes that chance will build a ribosome, clear your head with our online book.last_img read more
