About the Peer Groups

  • Participants grouped according to asset size ($3-5B, $5-10B, $10-50B)
  • Limited size (10-12 banks per group) so every participant can share ideas, ask questions and learn best practices after general session presentations for all participants
  • Video-based to simulate face-to-face interaction in a virtual environment
  • Confidential conversations, but no sharing of confidential information
