TD Wealth Management's Kalimah White Quoted in US News & World Report
TD Wealth Management's Kalimah White was quoted in the September 15th edition of US News and World Report in the article "Choosing Between a Revocable and Irrevocable Trust for Your Client."
"The main benefit of a revocable trust is the protection that it provides by ensuring that the grantor's wishes are implemented if incapacitated," says Kalimah White, senior trust advisor at TD Wealth Management. "Revocable trusts can also be used to avoid probate whereby the terms of the trust continue without delay of probate or will challenges from beneficiaries."

Troutman Pepper Advisory: SEC Modernizes Disclosures for Banking Registrants
On September 11, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the adoption of rules to update and expand the disclosures that banking registrants provide to investors. The new rule has been long in the making. This is the first substantive change to the statistical disclosure requirements for financial institutions in more than three decades. Nearly one year ago, Troutman Pepper published an alert discussing the SEC’s initial proposal, which has led to today’s final rule. Importantly, the SEC is eliminating Industry Guide 3, Statistical Disclosure by Bank Holding Companies and replacing it with updated disclosure requirements in a new subpart 1400 of Regulation S-K.
