There are huge risks in sending and receiving wire transfers, but your financial institution probably processes many on a daily basis without analyzing the associated risks. Wire transfers are one of the most frequent methods for fraud and unauthorized fund transfers. This webinar will explain the statutory and regulatory requirements imposed on your institution when handling wire transfers – and which party will be held liable for an error or a fraudulent wire transfer. In addition, it will address how to mitigate the associated risks through proper security procedures and how to shift certain risks to accountholders through carefully drafted wire transfer agreements.
