Leading the Way to High Performance

IBAT’s Endorsed Service Providers* are selected by bankers just like yourselves, so give them extra points with confidence when considering their proposals for your bank!

Negotiating on behalf of IBAT’s member banks, the board takes pride in the integrity of the due diligence process for these endorsements. They put themselves on your side of the desk before approving endorsed products/services, selecting those that will position your bank most competitively in your marketplace and enhance the profitability of your franchise. IBAT members have saved millions of dollars by requesting the "IBAT Member Only" unique benefits when using these ESPs!

The board doesn’t hesitate to invest resources in the due diligence review process. It engages outside consultants to review financials and audits, to survey customers, to assure that your data is secure, that the business resumption plan and risk management is in order, that the product meets requirements of state and federal agencies and that IBAT’s general counsel has reviewed bank contracts for major relationships. These endorsements
undergo due diligence review annually before renewal.

Endorsements are marketed by IBAT Services. Staff Contact: Curt Nelson cnelson@ibat.org
