Windsor, Colorado – (NewMediaWire) – November 02, 2021 – Higher Risk Deposit Compliance Solutions (“HD Compliance OR HDCS”), a banker-led and managed provider of comprehensive banking solutions for higher-risk industries, announced today that it is co-hosting a webinar with Austin-based fintech company RiskScout on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. CST.

The webinar, “Going Higher and Higher: Enhancing Your Cannabis Banking Program,” will provide an overview of the current landscape of state and federal regulations for cannabis banking, best practices for vetting cannabis-related businesses, tips for monitoring, reporting and training, and strategies for better harnessing your current cannabis customers. Presenters Kristin Parker, Director of Compliance for RiskScout, and Becky Postar, Chief Operating Officer for HDCS, will also share case studies and frequently asked questions for growing these types of programs.

“There are barriers for financial institutions to start and grow cannabis banking programs due to the current Schedule 1 status of cannabis, but we are confident that doing so can be both profitable and easy to implement with the right technology, training, and legal expertise,” said Andy Montgomery, CEO and Founder of HD Compliance. “We are proud to be able to work together with RiskScout to share our knowledge on this topic and help financial institutions grow their businesses with cannabis banking and lending programs.”

“We are excited to join HDCS for this upcoming educational webinar regarding cannabis banking,” said Justin Fischer, CEO and Co-Founder of RiskScout. “HDCS has been instrumental in helping many financial institutions that are eager to roll out their spectrum of banking products to businesses in the cannabis industry. I think our shared resources in presenting this webinar will demonstrate that both companies are industry leaders in this space, and also that cannabis is a powerful growth generator.”
