Same Day ACH Rules have been approved for implementation in the fall of 2016.  Every financial institution must prepare to receive ACH entries that will be settled on the same day as receipt. These new Rules present opportunities and challenges for all participants in the ACH Network. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear how your organization can benefit or will be impacted by the most significant change to the ACH Network in 40 years!

2:00 - 2:50p.m.  Topic: "FX Markets and Risk Management"

China recently stunned the global markets by devaluing the Chinese Yuan to a more flexible exchange rate regime.  At the same time, uncertainty around the Fed liftoff has risen, commodities prices have dropped and global growth remains weak.  What lies ahead, and how can clients exposed to international market risks quantify and manage their risk.  Please join us for a discussion on recent volatility in the markets, thoughts on the road ahead and strategies for managing risk.
