The Newsletter of the Office of the State Bank Commissioner
Fall 2001 Issue
The OSBC Trust Examiners are in this quarter's Employee Spotlight. The Trust Division of the OSBC currently has three employees that conduct examinations of 11 trust companies and 56 trust departments throughout the state of Kansas. Because of the specialized nature of trust administration, having a separate Trust Division provides banks and trust companies with examiners who can concentrate solely on trust issues and are specifically trained in this area.
