Payment Systems Bootcamp

Financial institutions regularly hire new staff due to retirement, promotion, or turnover.

This session is designed to give new operations staff that baseline understanding. It will address checks, ACH, cards, and wire participants, plus rules and key considerations for all staff. After this session, attendees will be more confident in answering accountholders’ transaction inquiries.

Handling Trusts & Other Fiduciary Accounts
Elizabeth Fast, Spencer Fane LLP
Opening a deposit account for a trust is substantially different – and riskier – than opening an account for an individual. Although many people inappropriately treat trust property as their own individual property, your financial institution must recognize the trust as a separate legal entity from the individual. Otherwise, trust beneficiaries may claim that your financial institution should have known that the trustee was using the deposit account for his/her individual purpose or otherwise in breach of his/her fiduciary duty. This webinar will explain everything you need to know about opening trusts and other fiduciary accounts, including proper account documentation, authorization requirements, and red flags. In addition, you’ll learn how to reduce the risk of loss when dealing with trusts and other fiduciary accounts.

Deposit Operations Comprehensive Compliance, Including BSA
Mary-Lou Heighes, Compliance Plus, Inc.
There are numerous laws and regulations that affect deposit operations beginning with new account opening, including identifying accountholders under the USA PATRIOT Act, OFAC compliance, Truth in Savings, and other disclosure requirements. Once the account is opened, there are requirements regarding transactions (including holds on deposits), Bank Secrecy Act monitoring requirements, reporting and recordkeeping, rules relating to checks, electronic funds transfers, account insurance, etc.
Compliance with consumer protection laws and regulations is a perennial priority with examiners and auditors. Avoiding complaints and inquiries leads to a better experience for accountholders. Understanding your duties and responsibilities can make achieving this goal almost second nature. Protecting your institution from unnecessary losses due to missteps is an added plus. Learn the dos and don’ts of handling accounts the right way with this important training.
