The House of Representatives have taken up the Safe Banking Act, which will allow banks to offer products and services to previously unbanked entities. This doesn’t necessarily mean you should jump right in and open accounts for just anyone. During this session we will help you navigate through HR 1595 and identify the challenges of banking Tier I, II, and III marijuana related businesses and hemp operations. We’ll discuss appropriate risk assessment and program modifications to set the stage for banking members of these high‐risk groups, including measures for handling banking relationships with business entities that deal with Tier 1 marijuana businesses, or employees of these higher risk entities. We’ll also explore the customer due diligence efforts and account monitoring necessary to ensure your institution will pass examiner scrutiny.



Target Audience:  CEOs, CFO, chief risk officers, bank presidents, compliance officers, internal auditors, BSA officers
