Unclaimed Property for Financial Professionals
Unclaimed property is confusing and confounding, but the risk of material liabilities is very real. Most companies are already aware of unclaimed property and how it arises, but often feel that the rules surrounding unclaimed property are confusing and contradict many of their standard processes and procedures. This presentation provides an overview of things that every financial professional, as well as anyone concerned about managing their company’s risk, should know about unclaimed property.
Participants will learn how unclaimed property can arise, how to identify and remediate risk associated with unclaimed property, and how to address it so that it can be resolved, or reported, correctly. In addition, this session will also address the impact of unclaimed property audits and well as trends in recent litigation and legislation impacting unclaimed property.
