Beginning Farmer Loan Program increased

The Internal Revenue Code had been amended to increase the maximum amount for the Beginning Farm Loan Program to $509,600. The program is designed to encourage lenders to offer lower interest rate financing to those starting a career in production agriculture. The Missouri Agricultural and Small Business Development Authority (MASBDA), housed at the Missouri Department of Agriculture, administers the farmer loan program which, in cooperation with local lenders, assists beginning farmers across the state in acquiring agricultural property at reduced interest rates.  The program enables lenders to receive federally taxexempt interest on loans made to beginning farmers.  The tax savings are passed on to beginning farmers in the form of lower interest rates.  To qualify as a beginning farmer, an See Beginning Farmer, Page 3

Technology trends: What’s coming in the next 5-7 years? By Jack Vonder Heide Which new technologies will change banking and which will prove to be nothing but hype? There are several emerging trends that could have Jack Vonder Heide a significant impact and banks should carefully monitor them. Data storage cost First, the cost of data storage has dropped exponentially during the past decade and is predicted to drop at an even steeper rate over the next few years. This means that banks should be able to

store literally every bit of information they have, indefinitely, at a very low cost. Data analysis and logic tools Second, data analysis and logic tools are becoming more robust, more intuitive and easier to use. Banks will be able to make practical use of the data under their control without a lot of IT expertise. For example, if a customer was coming in for a meeting, their banker could request a two-page summary of the client’s background and banking relationship and the report would be generated instantly. Marketing tools Third, custom marketing

tools will enable banks to promote the exact services and products their customers need at the exact time when they are most likely to buy. If a bank offered a zero percent teaser rate on a credit card for 12 months and wanted to market the card to existing customers who had credit cards with competing banks, a few simple commands would set everything up. When an existing customer went online to pay their monthly bill for a competitor’s card, they would be displayed with personalized information on how much money they could save by transferring the balance to a new card. Mobile payments Fourth, mobile payments will become more flexible. Traditionally, when a business applies for a credit card with the bank, a list of authorized users is provided and each user is issued his or

her own credit card. In the future, customers will be able to authorize any employee to make one-time charges on the company account. For example, if a restaurant wanted to authorize a kitchen worker to purchase dishwasher detergent at a wholesale warehouse, a QR code could be sent to the employee’s smartphone. When the employee arrived at the point of sale, the QR code would be scanned and a onetime charge to the company’s account would be authorized. Authentication technology Fifth, new advances in authentication technology will make account takeover more difficult. Voice recognition will enable a mobile user to access an account by repeating three random words that the system generates. If the words are spoken in the correct sequence and the voice print matches what the bank has on file, the customer will

be authenticated. Another method allows the customer to use a smartphone’s camera to take a picture of their eye. The photo is compared to the bank’s photo and, if they are a match, account access is granted. These are just a few of the promising technologies we can expect to see during the coming years. It is important for every bank to plan a technology strategy that provides outstanding customer service while maintaining proper cost controls. We are in for some exciting times! Jack Vonder Heide with Technology Briefing Centers, Oak Brook, IL, will be a general session speaker at MBA’s 2014 Technology Conference set for Feb. 11 and 12 at Tan-Tar-A Resort. He will speak at two sessions about new technologies. Visit the MBA website at www. mobankers.com for more information or turn to Page 16.

leaders and the governor put forth ambitious agendas. In Missouri, we have divided government with the legislative branch run by Republicans and the executive branch in Democrat hands. The GOP super majorities in both the House and Senate created a rare showdown during the annual veto session last September. A record number of vetoed bills were overridden and put into law. It remains to be seen how the legislative process will be affected by the veto session results. Will the governor’s office become more involved in the crafting of legislation? Will the GOP legislature continue to pass its priority bills with or without input from the governor’s office? Another development late in 2013 was the special session to attempt to entice Boeing to expand in the

St. Louis area. Lawmakers and the governor’s office worked together to quickly pass legislation. Will that cooperation carry over to this legislative session? One thing is certain … 2014 is an election year and the looming elections will most certainly play a role, as candidates begin filing for office on Feb. 25. HHHHHHH MBA has a busy agenda for banking related legislation this session, including bills to: • Reign in patent trolls and the unwarranted demand letters for payment by banks and small businesses on phony patent claims. • Update the legislation passed last session dealing with UCC Article 9. • Restore the intent of a condominium limited priority lien law following a negative Missouri

Supreme Court decision. • Provide banks and savings institutions with the same proportional income tax cut given to other Missouri corporations. • Prohibit pension advances to public employees. In addition, there will be many bills introduced that will have a negative impact on the banking industry. MBA expects to oppose legislation to allow a lien for the purchase of delinquent real estate taxes. With this in mind, I urge you to schedule a Target Banker visit this

session. There are so many lawmakers with very little experience and your contacts and grassroots efforts are the most important part of any successful legislative session for the industry. Earlier I discussed this being the start of my 32nd legislative session. There are many lawmakers who aren’t even 32 years old. The importance of getting your younger bank leaders to participate in the Target Banker program has never been more evident. Grassroots and banker involvement … I will be consistent on this message!!

2014 renewals successful for MBA VEBA By John Hunt Vice President MBA Bankers Benefit Corporation The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created significant consternation for many Members of MBA VEBA as they John Hunt considered their Jan. 1 major medical renewal. Even though the much discussed Employer Mandate was delayed until 2015, other major provisions of Federal Health Care Reform still apply in 2014. These include the Federally Facilitated Marketplace in Missouri, elimination of pre-existing condition limitations, removal of dollar limits on coverages and rate

revisions in the small group marketplace. Added to concerns about compliance with Health Care Reform was the need for an overall rate increase requested of MBA VEBA participants. While available benefit plans remain unchanged, the cost increase is an example of what has become the unfortunate norm in employee benefit plans. In the short term, staff and Trustees at MBA VEBA would count the January renewal cycle a strong success. The VEBA Trust retained 96 percent of its 2013 enrollment and the net impact on revenues provided exactly the increase needed to fund claim payments and support proper reserves in 2014. Now, the really hard work begins! VEBA plans are fully ACA compliant, but the es-

tablished cycle of premium increases related to the steadily rising cost of health care is not sustainable. Certainly, some VEBA member banks renewed their plans under a degree of duress and everyone remains concerned about overall plan costs. In the next few months, MBA VEBA staff and the

Trustees will be reviewing plans, processes, underwriting and rates in a search to find answers to these continuing questions. It is necessary for MBA VEBA to continue its evolution and, rather than being pleased about 96 percent retention in a renewal cycle, move to enrollment growth and

Regulation X (RESPA) 120-day hold for small servicers By Keith Thornburg MBA General Counsel Many of our banks qualify as “small loan servicers” and have been exempted from some of the burdensome and costly new requirements that the CFPB has imposed on large loan servicers, particularly with regard to the early intervention and “loss mitigation” procedures that are intended to assist borrowers that have fallen into default. The basis for the exemption is that these banks (small servicers) have typically originated these loans in their home communities. They know their customers, and community banks have always been knowledgeable and responsive to their customers’ circumstances and needs. Our small loan servicer banks have raised the question of whether they are subject to the “120 day hold” in delinquency status for the “first notice or filing” (i.e. initiating a foreclosure) since small servicers are exempted from significant portions of the CFPB’s new subpart C addition to RESPA/ Reg X / (12 CFR parts 1024.30 to 1024.41). Small servicers are specifically exempted from 12 CFR parts 1024.38 through 1024.41. While small servicers are generally exempted from 12 CFR 1024.41, including 12 CFR 1024.41(f) that establishes the general 120 day hold

– there is an express carve out that is both called out from the exemption and that expressly sets out a 120 day hold that does apply to small servicers, within this group of regulations at 12 CFR 1024.41(j). Essentially small servicers are NOT exempt from 12 CFR 1024.41(j) AND this section states an express and separate small servicer 120 day hold. This is pretty complex drafting and the awkward presentation in the regulations has resulted in confusion. Here is the exemption including the carve-out from the exemption related to 1024.41(j): 12 CFR 1024.30 (a) In general. Except as provided in paragraph (b) and (c) of this section, this subpart applies to any mortgage loan, as that term is defined in § 1024.31. (b) Exemptions. Except as otherwise provided in § 1024.41(j), §§ 1024.38 through 41 of this subpart shall not apply to the following: (1) A servicer that qualifies as a small servicer pursuant to 12 CFR 1026.41(e)(4); (Our emphasis) Small servicer is defined in Reg Z (12 CRF 1026.41(e) (4) – which definition is not at issue here. Here is the general 120 day hold associated with “loss mitigation” procedures:

12 CFR 1026.41 (addresses loss mitigation procedures) 1024.41(f)(1) provides: (f) Prohibition on foreclosure referral. (1) Pre-foreclosure review period. A servicer shall not make the first notice or filing required by applicable law for any judicial or non-judicial foreclosure process unless a borrower’s mortgage loan obligation is more than 120 days delinquent. Here is the small servicer 120 day hold that is NOT covered by the exemption AND that is written expressly to apply to small servicers: 12 CFR 1024.41(j): (j) Small servicer requirements. A small servicer shall not make the first notice or filing required by applicable law for any judicial or non-judicial foreclosure process unless a borrower’s mortgage loan obligation is more than 120 days delinquent. A small servicer shall not make the first notice or filing required by applicable law for any judicial or non-judicial foreclosure process and shall not move for foreclosure judgment or order of sale, or conduct a foreclosure sale, if a borrower is performing pursuant to the terms of an agreement on a loss mitigation option.

While small servicers are not bound under regulation or law to offer loss mitigation procedures, the drafters of 1024.41(j) apparently, in the second sentence wanted to assure that if a small servicer does choose to enter an agreement providing a loss mitigation option with the borrower – that no foreclosure process is initiated while the borrower is performing according to the agreement for, and while the loan is in, the loss mitigation status. This was likely incorporated as a pre-caution to assure no loan servicer (whether large or small) “double tracks” a borrower that is in default and participating in a loss mitigation program – by initiating the foreclosure process at the same time.  During the mortgage crisis some large servicers engaged in “double track” mitigation and foreclosure processes – either because of bureaucratic error – or – intentionally because in some states the foreclosure process takes so long that a trial modification could be dual tracked with the foreclosure process with the option of suspending the foreclosure – depending upon the borrower’s performance. The MBA appreciates the opportunity to consider your questions and to inform our membership of common concerns and challenges our members are seeing.

What’s Next? (now that Jan. 10, 2014 has passed?) By Rob Hoff, CRCM Vice President MBA Compliance Services How many of you remember the “late”, late show host Johnny Carson? One of his regular routines was called “Carnac the Magnificent”. Rob Hoff Ed McMahon would introduce Carson by saying something like, “And now, the great seer, soothsayer, sage and former financial adviser to the Greek government, Carnac the Magnificent!” Johnny would come from behind the curtain and walk to his desk wearing a feathered turban and a cape. Carnac would then hold up an envelope to his forehead and guess the answer to the question that was concealed inside the envelope – usually for some real laughs! Yeah, so that was funny, but what does all this trivia have to do with Compliance, you ask? So just imagine Carnac today holding up an envelope to his forehead, and it has a return address from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). “Carnac the Magnificent” makes

a snide look at his side kick on the couch, Ed McMahon, and says, “363 pages!” Then Carnac opens the envelope and the question was “What has CFPB done to help bankers understand all this Dodd-Frank stuff that went into effect 1/10/14?” The good news is that the CFPB is trying to help us by publishing seven different compliance guides that explain the new Truth in Lending and RESPA rules that went into effect January 10, 2014 from the DoddFrank Act. The bad news is the seven guides total 363 pages! You can access these guides through the CFPB website: http://www.consumerfinance.gov/ regulatory-implementation/ Then you will see a list of links of the various guides that you can download in Adobe format. I’ve made a listing (see the chart at upper right) and added two columns so you can see the most recent version and issue date on that topic, and the number of pages in the guide.

Interest rate risk: A priority for 2014

By Jeffrey F. Caughron Associate Partner The Baker Group LP

Banking environment As we move into a new year, the US economy continues to plod along at a slow and steady pace. Things are getting better, but we’re still far from where we were before the “Great Recession” began. Meanwhile, the banking landscape has improved markedly as earnings clocked 16 consecutive quarters of year-over-year increase. Returns on assets remain below pre-recession levels, but they’re higher than a year ago and comfortably above one percent. Much of the improved performance comes from healthier asset quality. Loan losses have declined to levels not seen since 2007, and provisions have fallen nearly forty percent. All of this is good news, but make no mistake; banks face a multitude of challenges ahead. Spotlight on interest rate risk Not the least of these challenges is that of potential interest rate risk (IRR). Regulatory agencies have once again elevated IRR as a focal point for examiners, as evidence suggests that many financial institutions are taking on higher levels of interest rate risk. Balance sheets have changed noticeably in recent years as loan demand has been weak and short-term rates have hugged historic lows. This could leave them significantly exposed to a sustained increase in interest rates. In October, the FDIC released an FIL on Sensitivity to Market Risk. Simultaneously, the OCC conducted a webinar to address the IRR issues they thought most important. There is a consensus among regulators that the essential risk for banks stems from long-term (or high duration) assets funded by non-maturity

deposits that have surged into bank balance sheets in the wake of the Great Recession. The influx of “surge deposits” has regulators concerned about the potential for fast rising interest expense from rate sensitive liabilities. At the same time, asset values could come under greater pressure than in past rate cycles because effective durations are relatively high. The price risk of some investment portfolios has increased significantly in the past few years due to lengthened maturities, options risk, and declining yields. Management tools The regulatory concerns should cause bank mangers to ponder several questions about the reporting tools that they have at their disposal: 1. Do we have reports that project securities depreciation relative to capital in a rising rate environment? 2. Does our IRR model shock the fair value of regulatory and risk-based capital ratios as well as simple equity capital? 3. Do we have a way to model faster re-pricing liabilities relative to earning assets? 4. Are “floors” on loans modeled properly in our IRR system? 5. Do we have reports that show how our balance sheet liquidity is affected by rising interest rates? 6. What if we just want to look at securities cash flow? Risk Management decision-making depends on thorough and meaningful data in a usable report format. The five questions above are good ones to consider when assessing the adequacy of an IRR reporting system. Risk, capital, and stress tests It makes good sense to measure and monitor the relationship between unrealized losses and capital. And this extends to various measures of capital itself. For example, if we apply the mark-to-mark

adjustment for securities to risk based capital measures, we can more closely capture a total picture of the bank’s relative risk. All else being equal, a bank that makes relatively few loans can sometimes justify a higher level of interest rate risk than a bank with a high loan/deposit ratio. Similarly, well-capitalized banks with pristine asset quality can tolerate more interest rate risk than those with high “Texas Ratios.” Institutions should run stress tests on assumptions for

non-maturity deposits in IRR models to identify exposure to rising rates and higher interest expense. Back tests and assumptions reviews should ensure that floors on loans are being modeled properly. The dynamics of balance sheet cash flows should be reported and reviewed, and investment cash flow projections tracked for different rate environments. Banks have again been given a “heads up” from examiners on interest rate risk. With proper reporting tools, good policies, and sound processes,

the regulatory challenge can be met and the potential risks managed for a smooth and profitable 2014. The Baker Group LP is an Associate Member of the Missouri Bankers Association.

Missouri banks continue to support Segs4Vets ...

West Plains Bank and Trust Company competed for the second year against Howell County employees with a scooter race around the West Plains Courthouse Square to raise funds for Segs4Vets. As part of the festivities, onlookers could purchase hot dog lunches with the proceeds going to Segs4Vets. The bank’s events raised more than $5,000.

First State Community Bank, Ironton, hosted a pancake breakfast as a fundraiser for Segs4Vets, in the photo below. Employees at Community First Banking Company, West Plains, display a presentation check that represents what they raised through casual days, luncheons, and the sales of the bank cookbook. The bank also offers extra time off for employees who sign up for a payroll deduction to Segs4Vets.

Scott Nelson, left, Macon-Atlanta State Bank, Macon, is a member of the Board for Segs4Vets. He took part in a recent Segs4Vets presentation at San Antonio, Texas, with Lt. Col. Bryan Forney who was injured during Exercise Cobra Gold 2013 in a helicopter crash and Col. H. C. Barney Barnum, a Medal of Honor recipient. One of the ways Scott raises money for Segs4Vets is cooking an Italian lunch for bank employees and directors.

MBA is a part of Regulatory Feedback Initiative (RFI) The MBA has joined with bankers associations across the country to create the Regulatory Feedback Initiative (RFI). This initiative will bring transparency and accountability to the regulatory process and will help every bank in the country prepare for their examinations and manage their regulatory risk.  The initiative consists of a brief, anonymous online survey that we are asking every bank to take immediately following each safety and soundness examination and each compliance examination.  We need every bank to build the survey into their examination process. For more information, visit the Coalition of Bankers Associations web site at www.allbankers.org. To receive a link to the survey contact Mike Noblett at the MBA via email at mnoblett@mobankers.com.

Titling Tips Title on Death assures vehicles don’t go through probate By Linda Petersen Manager MBA Title Service Before we get to this month’s topic I have a short announcement. Effective Jan. 1, 2014, I will not be in the office on most Fridays. Joyce Vaught, will be here to help you as always when I am not. This is my first “baby step” toward eventual retirement. I promise you the MBA Title Service will continue as always to offer the very best service to the banks of Missouri. TOD beneficiaries A TOD (Title on Death) beneficiary can be placed on a Missouri title to assure that when someone dies that vehicle does not have to go through the Probate Court. A TOD has no ownership rights until the owner is

actually deceased. A TOD can be placed on any title except one held in a business name. It is particularly advised for vehicles owned by only one person. Multiple individuals may be listed as TOD on a title. A trust can also be a TOD beneficiary. A TOD cannot be overridden by a Court Order. A TOD beneficiary named on a Missouri title may title the vehicle in their name or sell the vehicle upon the death of the owner without obtaining a Probate Court Order. A TOD beneficiary desiring to title the vehicle in their name(s) will need: - A Missouri Title Application (DOR 108) completed and signed by the TOD beneficiary. - Proof of death. This may take the form of a photocopy of the death certificate, the newspaper obituary

or the memorial program from a church or funeral home. - The original title needs to be submitted. It can be assigned to the beneficiary and the proof of death will serve as the “signature” of the deceased. - If the deceased’s title is lost, the beneficiary can obtain a duplicate title for the vehicle in their name by submitting a notarized affidavit indicating the original title is lost. This must be done before they can sell the vehicle. - Any unreleased lien will be carried over to the new title. - Proper title fees need to be paid. No taxes are due nor do title penalties apply. The TOD beneficiary may retain the deceased’s regular stock license plate. If the deceased had

a personalized or special plate the beneficiary must purchase new plates. The TOD who sells the vehicle without obtaining title will: - Assign the deceased’s title to the purchaser. The TOD will sign and print as the seller by signing their name(s), TOD. - Provide the purchaser with proof of death as noted above. - If there is a lien on the vehicle the TOD will need to provide the purchaser with a Notarized lien release from the lender. - They will need to fill out the Notice of Sale and submit it to the Missouri Department of Revenue. - The deceased’s license plates must be removed from the vehicle and may not be placed on another vehicle.
