Commercial Lending During and After the Pandemic

September 2020

With the current COVID-19 pandemic and some uncertainty regarding the future of the economy, commercial lenders need to be prepared for the changing landscape when it comes to commercial lending. With this in mind, Aldrich & Bonnefin, PLC is pleased to invite you to attend our Commercial Lending During and After the Pandemic Seminar.

This Seminar will focus on a number of important issues which commercial lenders must address both during and after the pandemic, including processing and documenting loan modifications and loan workouts. We will also discuss other select loan documentation issues, ways to reduce a lender’s liability in connection with commercial loans, and managing risks in an electronic environment. The Seminar will also cover various “hot topics,” including variable-rate loans and transitioning away from LIBOR, remote notarizations, and new government lending programs.














General Banking Operations

October 2020

Aldrich & Bonnefin, PLC is pleased to invite you and your operations staff to attend a Seminar addressing operations compliance. We will discuss a number of important banking operations compliance areas.

The Seminar will include an overview of taxpayer ID number certification requirements. As part of this discussion, we will go through the IRS Form W-9 and the various Form W-8BENs.

Additionally, the presentation will include issues and processes triggered when an institution is notified of an account holder’s death. This death of depositor discussion will include small estate processes, as well as estates subject to probate. We will highlight a recent change to the dollar threshold applicable to small estate affidavits.

We will also cover powers of attorney, including content requirements and related risks (general, durable, statutory, and trustee scenarios).

Last, we will provide an overview of the recent regulatory guidance related to your vendor management program, including key elements from the FFIEC’s Joint Statement on Security in a Cloud Computing Environment and the OCC’s Bulletin updating its third-party relationship FAQs.













Bank Secrecy Act Compliance

November 2020

Aldrich & Bonnefin is pleased to invite you to attend our full-day Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Seminar. As state and federal regulatory agencies continue to scrutinize compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act, it is more important today than ever for financial institutions to ensure proper steps are being taken to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism. This is made particularly difficult due to money laundering schemes continuing to evolve, which has become more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this Seminar, we will discuss in detail customer due diligence (CDD) expectations with a focus on providing services to high-risk customers, including the difficulties in dealing with cannabis and hemp-related businesses. This CDD discussion will also examine the requirements of the CIP and beneficial ownership rules and a new set of CDD FAQ’s issued by FinCEN.

Finally, we will discuss other BSA developments, including FinCEN’s Statement on Enforcement of the Bank Secrecy Act and a rare FinCEN warning concerning reports of impending media articles on unlawfully disclosed SARs.
