Are Safe Deposit Boxes on the Way Out?

After This Webinar You’ll Be Able To:

  • Why are nationwide institutions eliminating this service?
  • What might happen if safe deposit services are discontinued?
  • How much notice must be given if service is discontinued?
  • What safe deposit operating expenses could be saved?

Webinar Details
There are an estimated 30 million safe deposit boxes rented in thousands of financial institutions nationwide. Although banking is a highly regulated industry, there are very few laws governing safe deposit operation and no guidelines for eliminating this service. Should your safe deposit service be phased out? Many large nationwide institutions are eliminating safe deposit services and not installing boxes in new branches. They are regarded as a headache, expensive to install, complicated to operate and maintain, and not very lucrative. Learn the pros and cons for continuing or discontinuing this service.

Who Should Attend?
This informative session will be of special interest and benefit to legal counsel, branch managers, training departments, compliance and marketing officers, and senior management responsible for managing safe deposit operations.
