Opening New Accounts: Business Accounts

About This Course:
Managing risk is the #1 priority for all financial institutions and it all starts at the new account desk. Well-trained new account personnel who recognize and stop attempted dishonest activity are the first line of defense in protecting a financial institution.

Unfortunately, too often, new account personnel are trained "on the job" which can result in an environment of potential vulnerability and unnecessary losses. When opening a business account, verifing if a business entity is legal and who is authorized to transact business on behalf of that entity can be complicated.

This two hour Webinar, which is Part 2 of a three part series, examines not only the compliance requirements on business entities available in most states but clearly indentifies who has authority to open and transact on the account.

It is highly recommended you have a copy of your financial institution's account agreement, signature card and resolutions to reference during the session. To customize the session to your state law, you may want to access your Secretary of State's website to access documentation requirements on forming business structures in your state.What You'll Learn:Suzette (Suzie) Jones, CFP® served as an Executive Vice President at a $50B regional financial institution where her responsibilities included the overall leadership and risk management of the $11B Investment Department which included the Trust Department.
