BSG Financial Group webinars to instruct banks, credit unions how to take advantage of re-emerging overdraft opportunities

Sessions will help financial institutions assess their current overdraft technology and procedures for optimal performance, service and compliance.

LOUISVILLE, KY (April 17, 2018) — BSG Financial Group, a leading provider of revenue-enhancement and compliance solutions for financial institutions nationwide, will host two webinars on Tuesday, April 24—one for banks and one for credit unions—regarding the management of discretionary overdrafts. The webinar for banks, entitled “Compliance is King in Bank Overdraft Management,” will be held at 11 a.m. EST. The webinar for credit unions, “From Stale to State-of-the-Art: How Credit Unions Can Modernize Their Overdraft Systems for Compliance and Bottom-Line Results,” will be held at 2:30 pm EST. The webinars, which are part of the company’s on-going series of educational presentations, seek to instruct financial institution executives about the importance of running an updated and modern discretionary overdraft program, both in terms of technology and procedures, and how doing so can result in improved service, income and safety.

“In the years since Dodd-Frank legislation, many banks and credit unions have let their discretionary overdraft programs languish for fear of new regulations and overall heightened scrutiny of overdraft programs,” said Jeffrey Harper, president of BSG Financial Group. “Today, regulations seem to be easing and new technologies have emerged. Financial institutions need to ‘get with the times’ to take full advantage of the opportunities of a re-emerging overdraft landscape.”

Harper, who is the presenter for both webinars, will instruct financial institutions how to modernize their overdraft systems with a focus on service to the consumer and risk-management for the institution. He will also present key performance metrics every financial institution should monitor that can help enhance income and service and ensure their discretionary overdraft programs are compliant.

Both webinars are especially relevant to institutions that have not recently assessed their overdraft procedures, disclosures, reports, compliance and technology capabilities. “If your institution’s program has been running on auto-pilot, you could be experiencing a negative trend in service charges on deposit accounts, foregoing service opportunities and putting your institution at risk for charge-offs and compliance,” said Harper. “Attending one of these 60-minute webinars could prove to be the most valuable hour of your day.”
