New Year - New Outlook

Catalyst Corporate’s 2015 Blueprint for Success broadcast is January 9th 

Plano, Texas - In January, for the first time, Catalyst Corporate Federal Credit Union will deliver its annual credit union economic outlook as a moderated panel discussion addressing such topics as rates, credit risk, investments, and regulatory concerns. The 2015 Blueprint for Success, presented once again as a multimedia production, reflects Catalyst Corporate’s continued commitment to enhancing investment and economic training for its members.

“Credit unions benefit from having information delivered in a dynamic, visual format,” said Catalyst Corporate Vice President of Investment Services Mike McGinnis. “We believe using video instead of a standard webcast, especially with this year’s panel discussion format, will make it more engaging and improve retention of the material.”

Even more important than format, he said, is content. “Of course, the most critical aspect of all of our educational programs is how relevant the information is to credit unions,” said McGinnis. “Catalyst Corporate staff members have the ability to explain the connections between market and economic events and credit union balance sheets and operations. That’s hard to find anywhere else.”

The 2015 Blueprint for Success will include a discussion of how economic growth will impact member spending, loan growth projections, liquidity, investments, and cost of funds, among other current issues.

The event will be broadcast January 9 at 1 p.m. Central Time. Panelists include Steven Houle, Catalyst Strategic Solutions Director of Advisory Services; Mark DeBree, Catalyst Strategic Solutions Director of ALM Services; and Sarina Freedland, Catalyst Corporate Senior Investment Officer.
