From there, Oren transitioned south to Lafayette, LA where he worked as the Assistant Treasurer for Midsouth Bank. Here, Oren was a key player in strategically managing a large portion of the bank’s assets through prudent portfolio management in the fixed-income portfolio as well as accurately modeling the institution’s sensitivity to changes in interest rates with respect to the bank’s leverage and asset-liability profile.
