Seminars – Credit Unions

For years, Baker Group representatives have spoken at banking schools, seminars, conventions, and workshops across the country in order to help community financial institutions and credit unions gain insights and education on key topics that are relevant to their respective institutions.

Baker Group is recognized as the industry leader in education on portfolio strategies and interest rate risk at seminars and conferences across the country. However, we also offer many of these same education and strategic services directly to our clients.

Our financial strategies team provides individually tailored plans to help your institution achieve its financial goals. We also have decades of experience in virtually all areas of financial management with a specialty in keeping up with the almost daily-changing regulations.

We will work with your board of directors and senior management to assist in the development of strategic plans as well as helping you understand the regulatory environment.

For additional information, contact a Baker representative and don’t miss our ongoing educational programs throughout the year.
