Preparing for a Prime Rate of 6% and What It Means for Your Business Customers posted 06/02/2022







Featuring: John Barlow & Joel Mueller, Barlow Research Associates, Inc.

Barlow Research’s latest Economic Pulse finds business confidence in the U.S. economy has reached a low point and prices continue to climb. To battle high inflation, the Fed has raised rates twice since the beginning of the year. After years of a low interest rate environment, it is now time to begin preparing for what comes next.

Join Barlow Research on Friday, June 3rd, 2022, for the podcast release as we discuss how to prepare for a rising interest rate environment and what that means for depository business relationships. 

In this webcast, you will learn: 

  • The current state of small businesses ($100K-<$10MM in annual sales) and middle market companies ($10MM-<$500MM in annual sales), and what issues continue to be a struggle
  • Why small businesses are a net provider of funds and middle market companies are not
  • How to prepare your financial institution for a prime rate of 6%

This discussion is designed for anyone involved in small business banking, relationship management, branch management, sales and sales management, marketing, market research, risk management or line of business strategy.
