ICBA Expands Preferred Service Provider Program with Wolters Kluwer Financial Services
Included RESPA and Regulation CC and GG Solutions
Washington, D.C. (January 4, 2010)—The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) has expanded its Preferred Service Provider program with Wolters Kluwer Financial Services to include the company’s RESPA and Regulation GG Tool Kits, as well as the company’s suite of Regulation CC products. Wolters Kluwer Financial Services introduced all three solutions to financial institutions in 2009 to help them address regulatory changes.
“Over the past year, our nation’s community banks have withstood an onslaught of new regulatory requirements even though they are common-sense lenders that have always worked in the best interest of their customers,” said Dan Clancy, senior vice president of services at ICBA. “Wolters Kluwer Financial Services has helped community banks respond rapidly to these changes so they are not overburdened and can continue to serve their customers. ICBA is confident that Wolters Kluwer Financial Services will help its community bank members do the same with RESPA and Regulations CC and GG.”
Under the terms of the expanded ICBA Preferred Service Provider relationship, Wolters Kluwer Financial Services will provide ICBA community bank members with access to the following solutions:
- RESPA Tool Kit that offers institutions streamlined RESPA policy development through the company’s PRINGLE® Policies & Audit Procedures software, employee training videos, and an implementation and documentation guide;
- Regulation CC solutions that include training Webinars, standard and up-to-date initial funds availability disclosures, change notices, updated funds availability lobby posters, PRINGLE software, and revisions to Wolters Kluwer Financial Services deposit software solutions; and
- Regulation GG Tool Kit that includes a sample Regulation GG policy, an implementation guide and audit procedure checklist, staff training materials, an Unlawful Internet Gambling Notice for use with customers, and PRINGLE software.
“Each solution adds to Wolters Kluwer Financial Services already-strong reputation for helping financial institutions comply with regulatory changes as quickly and painlessly as possible,” said Lisa Fraga, vice president and general manager of banking content for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. “Institutions can rest assured that we’ll continue to develop solutions to help them rapidly respond to every new compliance obligation that comes their way.”
Wolters Kluwer Financial Services also offers ICBA members access to a broad array of the company’s other solutions. These include the ComplianceOne risk-management platform and the company’s other lending and deposit software solutions and printed documents. In addition, the ICBA Preferred Service Provider relationship also includes the company’s PCi compliance analytics solutions, which help banks address fair and anti-predatory lending requirements, comply with the Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering regulations, and combat fraud and financial crimes.
