Course description

The safe deposit operation is a unique, fast-changing service in the financial industry.

It is the only product or service in which members of your staff do not know the value of a consumer's assets. As a result, every vault transaction can lead to considerable liability. Effective procedures and sound daily practices can counteract and minimize this risk. <strong>This seminar covers the "nuts and bolts" and the recommended day-to-day operating procedures for your institution.

Dave McGuinn, a nationally recognized expert in the safe deposit area, will provide clear, concise answers to all the basic or complicated questions regarding your institution's responsibility, liability and daily operating procedures. In addition, you will receive information about many current lawsuits and other nationwide horror stories.

Obtain answers to these questions and more to establish you own internal procedures.
