Powers-of-attorney are complex legal documents used to transact business with your financial institution on a daily basis. If not handled properly, your institution can be exposed to significant risk if the attorney-in-fact intentionally (or innocently) acts outside the scope of his or her authority. This webinar will explain everything you need to know about attorneys-in-fact regarding deposit accounts and loan transactions. Join us to learn the actions an attorney-in-fact can and cannot take on behalf of your accountholder and how your institution can reduce its risk of loss.
