One of the most recent developments to come out of the banking industry were the recent layoffs conducted by Wells Fargo, the fourth largest lender in the United States. Announced last month, Wells Fargo laid off more than 200 employees mostly focused within their agriculture loan divisions in states such as North and South Dakota. According to people with direct knowledge on the matter, Wells Fargo has cut the commercial loan division of their lending portfolio by 25%. This comes as a blow to the farmers in North and South Dakota who were relying on Wells Fargo to meet their lending needs.
In late September Pennsylvania State House of Representatives passed new legislation that will allow public school students to apply personal finance credits towards high school graduation requirements. Daniel Laughlin, a state senator for Pennsylvania stated, “I believe high school courses in personal finance should be encouraged.”1 This new legislation will go into effect within the 2020 school year. Students that complete a personal finance course have the ability to use that as a credit for math, social studies, business education, or family and consumer science. Pennsylvania promoting personal finance within their schools is encouraging and hopefully other states will follow their lead.

This month we have focused on numerous aspects of cybersecurity. Sometimes simply starting the conversation about cybersecurity is the first step in protecting your customers information from cyber criminals. Cybersecurity is becoming a huge factor for consumers when selecting an institution to partner with their business. It is also becoming an important step in the on-boarding process of a customer. However, there are steps that you can take to illustrate your cybersecurity protocols and make your customers feel at ease about doing business with you.
