Developing a Compliance Management Program for a Trust Organization

March 17th, 2021

12:30-1:30 pm Central Standard Time

A compliance management program is a crucial component of an effective approach to compliance for trust departments and trust companies. Regulators are increasingly stressing the importance of compliance testing as part of the compliance program for trust organizations.  Management is expected to identify, respond to, and remediate compliance violations and deficient practices in a timely manner.

However, developing an effective trust compliance program that includes testing is a significant task that requires a balancing of limited resources and an extensive understanding of the many laws, rules and regulations that must be addressed.

This webinar will, focused on trust organizations, discuss:

  • Developing a compliance management program, including testing that meets your needs,
  • Regulatory expectations for a compliance management program,
  • Effective compliance testing,
  • Separating the responsibilities of the first line of defense (business) from the second line of defense (compliance); and,
  • Duties of the Board of Directors and Management.

Who should attend:

  • Compliance Officers
  • Internal Audit personnel
  • Trust management
