Economic and M&A Outlook for Banking: What to expect in 2013


So much of M&A depends on certainty in the marketplace. Please join us for a webinar focused on the economic and M&A outlook for the coming year. Our industry and economic experts will provide insights into the current economy, likely policies in the next year and the impact of foreign markets on the U.S. Economy.

M&A activity has slowly been increasing in 2012. What are the conditions impacting deal flow and where have Banks been finding acquisitions - both in terms of depository institutions and non-depository acquisitions?

Rick Childs of Crowe Horwath will provide a current industry update on the landscape of M&A for financial institutions, while Chad Kellar, also of Crowe Horwath, will provide insights into specific risks in acquiring non-depository institutions. 

And you will certainly also want to hear what Dr. McTeer, Distinguished Fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis, has to say about: the macro-economy and the likely stance of monetary policy during 2013, along with the implications of different reactions to the fiscal cliff. He will also discuss the international implications of the European debt crisis, the slowdown in China, and the threat of a contraction of world trade.

Bob McTeer -  National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA)
Distinguished Fellow
Dr. Robert McTeer is a Distinguished Fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) covering macroeconomic issues, including monetary policy, fiscal policy, tax and education - as well as Senior Economic Advisor at Commerce Street Capital. Recently, Dr. McTeer played a leading role in urging Congress to suspend the onerous mark-to-market rule. Mark-to-market accounting caused many banks and other financial institutions to fail during the recent financial crisis. Often testifying before Congress, he has had a profound impact on decisions being made in Washington, especially those that directly impact the bottom line of millions of Americans whose wealth is tied to physical assets and investments in the stock market.

Prior to joining the NCPA, he was chancellor of the Texas A&M University System and President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. As President of the Dallas Fed Dr. McTeer was also a member of the Federal Open Market Committee. He serves on the Board of Directors of Westwood Holdings in Dallas and on the Board of Overseers of the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business, where he was named Distinguished Alumnus in 1991.

Dr. McTeer is a regular contributor on CNBC and frequently is interviewed by Bloomberg TV and radio, and has written several financial columns for The Wall Street Journal and other national publications. He is past president of the Association of Private Enterprise Education, a national association of free enterprise scholars and others who advocate market solutions to public policy problems, and a former board member of the National Council on Economic Education.

Bob was featured as a Texas Legend in Business in 2004 by the Texas Cable News Network. As a Fed policymaker, he gained a national reputation as an independent voice. His outspoken views and plain talk earned him the labels, the "Lone Star Loner" and "Lonesome Dove." But he acknowledges that he's been called worse. Dr. McTeer earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Georgia and is well-known for writing poetry related to financial issues.
