Fiduciary Powers – Thrifts vs. National Banks

OCC - about 30% of national banks have fiduciary powers.

OTS - about 10% of thrifts act as fiduciaries.

Rent a trustee concerns

Rent-A-Trustee Concerns

  • OCC Bulletin #2011-11 “Collective Investment Funds and Outsourced Arrangements” requires banks to:

    • Perform due diligence on and periodically monitor your fund’s vendors

    • Ensure only eligible participants are admitted to bank funds

    • Include in any contract with a third party a requirement that the vendor will prominently identify the bank that sponsors the fund in any advertising and other materials.


Rent a trustee concerns1

Rent-A-Trustee Concerns

  • OCC Bulletin #2011-11

    • Principally applies to unaffiliated vendors such as RIAs

    • Does not expressly apply to affiliates as we assume banks and their affiliated RIAs have a common interest not to unnecessarily assume reputation, compliance, strategic or transaction (operational) risks

    • Continues to allow outsourcing of certain CIF functions to vendors, subject to longstanding OCC CIF and vendor management guidance.


Recent am group guidance

Recent AM Group Guidance
