Topic: Why Your Bank Asks So Many Questions

More than ever you are fielding questions from bankers regarding your accounts, policies and procedures.  Why does your bank ask so many questions?  In this session you will learn how banks leverage answers to questions to help prevent fraud and financial crime and how new and changing regulations, across the regulatory landscape, are driving the questions that banks ask.
