Session to detail how remittance solution will help financial institutions meet new requirements under the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's revisions to Regulation E

NEW YORK, November 13, 2012 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, today announced that its Treasury Services group is hosting a Webinar on Thursday, November 15, at 2 p.m. EST during which remittance transfer experts will detail support services designed to help financial institutions comply with new remittance regulations.

The Webinar will explain how BNY Mellon's solution facilitates compliance with the expanded reporting and price transparency requirements for electronic cross-border consumer remittances going into effect February, 2013, under the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's revisions to Regulation E as mandated by Section 1073 of the Dodd-Frank Act. Notable examples of these new requirements include providing information prior to the remitter's transfer request on the remitter and beneficiary involved in each transaction; foreign exchange and other fees being charged by all parties participating in the transaction; and information on applicable taxes.
