Opening New Accounts: Part I Personal/Consumer Accounts
This is part I of a three part series to be held on November 1, 2, and 3. The price below is just for part I.
Well-trained bankers who recognize and stop attempted dishonest activity are the first line of defense in protecting a financial institution from fraudsters. Unfortunately, new account personnel are too often trained “on the job,” which results in an environment of potential vulnerability and unnecessary losses for the bank. This comprehensive training focuses on providing new and experienced bankers with the knowledge and tools needed to protect the bank when opening personal and consumer accounts.
This two-hour workshop focuses on the risks, procedures, best practices, and compliance requirements for opening Personal and Consumer Accounts.
Opening new accounts is complicated! With fraudulent activity at an all-time high and ongoing onerous regulatory oversight and scrutiny, the need for new account training is paramount to maintain diligence and update processes and procedures. This two-hour workshop, Part I of a three-part series, focuses on the risks, procedures, best practices, and compliance requirements for opening Personal and Consumer Accounts. Attendees will gain an understanding of proper documentation requirements, ownership options, the impact of account ownership options on estate planning, proper account titling, and who has the authority to open and transact on the account during a lifetime, and at the death of a signer. Part II of this three-part series encompasses Business Accounts, and Part III addresses Trust and Fiduciary Accounts.
