Seminar Description


Managing risk is the #1 priority for all financial institutions and it all starts at the new account desk. Well-trained bankers who recognize and stop attempted dishonest activity are the first line of defense in protecting a financial institution from fraudsters. Unfortunately, too often, new account personnel are trained "on the job" which can result in an environment of potential vulnerability and unnecessary losses. Additionally, with constant new regulations, the need for ongoing training is paramount in order to maintain diligence as well as update processes and procedures.


This full day workshop teaches vital account opening procedures, regulatory and compliance requirements while focusing on essential information needed for every new account. This includes CIP requirements such as proper identification and the correct TIN but also requires understanding the fundamental questions that should be answered by every potential accountholder: What is the purpose of the account? Who owns the funds? Who will have access to the funds during lifetime and at death? Who can legally represent a business entity? The seminar manual is customized to your state law and has become known as the "technical reference handbook" for new account departments across the country.
