Through the medallion signature guarantee your financial institution warrants that a signature authorizing the transfer of a security is authentic. This helps to protect shareholders by reducing the risks of forged signatures. If ANY of these warranties are breached, your institution becomes liable for the ENTIRE value of the security transferred.

In this session, we will review the medallion signature guarantee program and its requirements, including how you and your institution can participate. We will discuss how and when the medallion signature guarantee is to be used and how it is different from using a "standard" signature guarantee or notarizing a signature. Sample procedures for utilizing the stamp and documenting its use will be provided. Join us for this informational session!
