The American Bankers Association has expanded its trust education program with new seminars scheduled for the Chicago area in August on sales, estate planning, and compliance.
In association with Northwestern University, the ABA has offered continuing education in trust for 35 years.
Four new programs-National Sales School for Trust Professionals, Advanced Trust Sales Seminar, National Advanced Estate Planning School, and National Trust Compliance School-are being introduced in response to increased interests.
"A lot students asked for more specialized training," a ABA spokeswoman said. "Especially in sales, because of increased competition in the investment management business."
