deadline of February 7, 2013. This regulation, a requirement of the Dodd-Frank
Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, is one of the major
issues facing financial institutions in 2013.

complex regulatory demands of Dodd-Frank, in addition to other regulations.

    the transaction—Money Transfer System facilitates Dodd-Frank disclosures
    aligned with the bank’s standard mechanisms of providing customer
  *The ability to automatically manage the required 30 minute transaction
    hold—Money Transfer System manages the mandatory wait period in an
