Funds Management Services
The Funds Management feature of the Services allows Customer to initiate funds transfers, obtain a listing of fund transfer transactions, and obtain a summary of all complete and incomplete funds transfers occurring during the business day.

Customer shall be solely responsible for verifying the accuracy of the information contained in a wire transfer request.

As part of the security procedures, Customer agrees to change the Customer PIN periodically. Customer shall be solely responsible for distributing the Customer Access ID issued by ANB to authorized users and for protecting and preserving the confidentiality and secrecy of the Customer Access ID, Token and PIN issued to authorized users.
