New York, NY, December 01, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- The Global Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused teleconferences, has announced today that ABA Banking Journal, the official monthly magazine of the American Bankers Association since 1908, will be a media sponsor for the upcoming teleconference on “New Regulatory Changes in the FDIC Deposit-Insurance Fund & Its Impact on Financial Institutions," scheduled on January 4, 2007 at 11:00 AM EST.
As a widely anticipated consequence of legislation passed in Congress, the FDIC’s board recently voted to approve an increase of annual premiums. The new premiums, which range from .005% to .007% of a bank’s insured deposits, are higher then the anticipated .01% to .03% increase. Furthermore, the premiums will differ among banks depending on a number of factors including:
* Supervisory rating
* Financial ratios
* Debt ratios (larger banks)
To help untangle the confusion surrounding this legislation, The Global Knowledge Congress has assembled a panel to help make sense of it and how it will affect your bank. The panel will present their findings including a best practices segment at a two-hour teleconference scheduled for January 2007.
