For this assignment, you will prepare a financial institutions blog using the Blog Tool in Blackboard.
Pretend that you are a bank leader who enjoys writing about financial institutions in a blog. For this post, you will describe how bank leaders like yourself prepare for interest rate risks. You will also evaluate how changes in the interest rate dictate the rates set by financial institutions. Finally, you will analyze how the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decisions impact interest rates. Bring in real-world examples or scenarios. Be sure that you conduct the research to back up your position on the blog.
Utilize the Blog Tool in Blackboard to submit your blog assignment. Also, make certain to comment on a blog post of at least one of your colleagues.
Your instructor will be grading your assignment according to the assignment rubric. This includes your ability to post your assignment, receive a reply to your post, and respond back to the individual who responded to your post. Participation frequency is expected from each student. Be sure that you provide an initial response to the topic; participate frequently and consistently; and respond to everyone who responds to his/her posts. Also, please use proper etiquette and social media courtesy when posting your assignment, replying to a post, or responding back to your post as it will impact your grade.
Your blog post should be formatted in a relaxed and narrative manner; however, remain professional and maintain your academic tone. The blog must be at least two pages in length (500–600 words minimum). You are encouraged to use media (pictures, graphs, tables) in your blog post. You must use a minimum of two sources. All references should be cited and formatted in APA style.
