50 Key Safe Deposit Procedures

The safe deposit operation is a unique, fast-changing service in the financial services 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 customer safe deposit vault visit can lead to considerable liability. Effective procedures and sound daily practices can counteract and minimize this risk. This seminar covers the "nuts and bolts" of safe deposit operations and the key procedures that can help your institution eliminate some risks and control others.

Dave McGuinn, a nationally recognized expert in the safe deposit area, will provide clear, concise answers to both basic and complex questions about your institution's responsibility, liability and daily safe deposit operating procedures. He will also provide information about many current lawsuits and other nationwide horror stories that serve as object lessons on "what not to do" in your safe deposit operation.
