Home Equity Lines of Credit

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Aldrich & Bonnefin, PLC is pleased to invite you to a Webinar on Home Equity Lines of Credit and the compliance requirements under the Truth in Lending Act and Regulation Z.

Home equity lines of credit are compliance intensive. Beginning with special disclosures at the application stage and extra required disclosures in the account agreement, and continuing with tough restrictions on freezing or terminating HELOCs or changing any of the terms, offering home equity lines requires a detailed knowledge of the applicable rules. Periodic billing statements are also presenting issues for some lenders.

This Webinar takes a step-by-step approach, beginning with the advertising requirements, followed by the early application disclosures, then addressing the special equity line disclosures that must be included at account opening, and ending with the restrictions on changing terms and freezing or terminating these credit lines. We will also touch on the right of rescission and periodic statements. Plenty of examples and time for questions will be provided.






How to Review a Private Flood Insurance Policy

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

On July 1, 2019, regulated lenders will have to start accepting private flood insurance (PFI) policies. Are you ready? Do you know when you must or may accept a PFI? On the flipside, do you know when you are not permitted to accept a PFI?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, we have the webinar for you. Our April 30 webinar on “How to Review a Private Flood Insurance Policy” will help you answer “yes” to these questions. The Outline we will provide for this Webinar will also include checklists to help you start reviewing PFI policies by walking you through some low-hanging fruit and common PFI issues. There will be plenty of time for questions.

Note: We will discuss the new PFI Rule during the Mortgage Lending Compliance Seminar in June, but since we’ve received requests to offer more training on the rule sooner than that, we’ve scheduled this webinar to accommodate those requests.





IRS Information Reporting

Thursday, May 23, 2019

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Aldrich & Bonnefin, PLC is pleased to invite you and your operations personnel to attend our BCG Webinar on IRS Information Reporting.

Our discussion will give institutions a general understanding of the tax information reporting process. Specifically, we will discuss the taxpayer identification number and withholding certification requirements (Form W-9 and Forms W-8). We will also spend time discussing the tax information reporting requirements for deposit interest (1099-INT), miscellaneous income (1099-MISC), original issue discount (1099-OID), mortgage interest (1098), discharged debt (1099-C) and abandoned property (1099-A).

Virtual Currencies and Blockchain Technology in Banking

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

With virtual currencies and blockchain technology becoming increasingly popular and commonplace, they are making their way into the banking industry. In this Webinar, we will dive into the world of virtual currencies and blockchain technology, and consider the products and services banks provide to virtual currency-related businesses and how financial institutions may utilize blockchain technology. As we explore blockchains and virtual currencies, and the related financial products and services, we will also discuss the associated legal and regulatory issues as well as the related risks.







Vendor Management

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Financial institutions are increasingly outsourcing activities and processes to third parties. It is no surprise that federal banking regulators have emphasized the need for institutions to manage the risks associated with vendor relationships. In some cases, the failure to adequately manage these relationships have resulted in significant regulatory penalties, legal risks and reputational damage.

Join us as we discuss the federal regulators’ expectations regarding your institution’s vendor management program, including the need for your board’s involvement, critical risk assessments, vendor selection, negotiating vendor agreements, and your ongoing monitoring obligations.

As part of the Webinar we will include a discussion of due diligence and contract negotiation checklists incorporating the various considerations that should be a part of your vendor management program.
