What People Are Saying
GSBC allowed me to expand my knowledge of banking, not only in my area of expertise, but in all facets of the profession. The learning and networking opportunities along with the exceptional faculty created an avenue for my professional growth. There is no better choice than GSBC for people who are open to learning and ready to take the next step in their careers. It is for these reasons and many more that GSBC is the school of choice for Northeast Bank.
If you have C-suite aspirations, I highly recommend this program. The instruction is world-class. Faculty and coaches offer classroom instruction and practical exercises that benefited me as a leader and had a positive impact on our bank’s performance, our customers, our employees and the communities we support. A vital part of this program is also getting away from the day-to-day operations of the bank, spending time immersed in learning with and from peers who are facing the same challenges and opportunities. My classmates will be a valuable network for me for years to come.
Recession Nearing? Portfolio Strategies for the Year Ahead
What a difference a few months make. In October 2018, the 10-year Treasury rate hit 3.25% and many market participants anticipated two more Federal Reserve rate hikes. The Treasury yield curve was modestly upsloping with longer-term rates above short-term rates. In recent days, the 10-year rate has fallen as low as 2.4% and the yield curve has inverted to where the 10-year rate is slightly below the 3-month Treasury rate.Learn More
