Message from John Epperson, Managing Principal, Financial Services
Dear FIEB readers,
As we close out the third quarter of 2021, we see signs of improved earnings performance across most of the financial services sector, largely driven by improving credit conditions as well as continued M&A activity.
Regulatory and reporting developments remain light for the past month. Some key developments on the regulatory side include a comprehensive paper published by the Fed on community bank and fintech partnerships and a nudge from the Basel Committee for financial institutions to beef up cyber risk preparedness.
I invite our readers to join our 2021 Crowe Financial Services Conferences. We will cover the latest accounting and financial reporting changes, federal tax proposals, and critical economic and technology trends – information that can help you navigate this time of rapid transformation. Registration is now available for various in-person locations or a virtual experience, all including CPE credit.
