As an added bonus, the following is a federal statute you might find relevant.
A national bank may fulfill its obligation to disclose information on the source and amount of remuneration, required by § 12.4, for mutual fund transactions by providing this information to the customer in a current prospectus, at or before completion of the securities transaction. The OCC’s view is consistent with the position of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as provided in a no-action letter dated March 19, 1979, which permits confirmations for mutual funds to refer to the sales load disclosed in the prospectus. See Letter to the Investment Company Institute, reprinted in [1979 Transfer Binder] Fed. Sec. L. Rep. (CCH) 82041 (Mar. 19, 1979). The OCC would reconsider its position upon any change in the SEC’s practice.
(a) In appropriate situations, a national bank may satisfy the written notification requirement under§§12.4 and 12.5 through electronic communications. Where a customer has a facsimile machine, a national bank may fulfill its notification delivery requirement by sending the notification by facsimile transmission. Similarly, a bank may satisfy the notification delivery requirement by other electronic communications when:
(1) The parties agree to use electronic instead of hard-copy notifications;
(2) The parties have the ability to print or download the notification;
(3) The recipient affirms or rejects the trade through electronic notification;
(4) The system cannot automatically delete the electronic notification; and
(5) Both parties have the capacity to receive electronic messages.
(b) The OCC would consider the permissibility of other situations using electronic notifications on a case-by-case basis.
This part applies to national banks that have filed notice as, or are required to file notice as, government securities brokers or dealers pursuant to section 15C of the Securities Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78o-5) and Department of the Treasury rules under section 15C (17 CFR 400.1(d) and part 401).
(a) Bank that is a government securities broker or dealer means a national bank that has filed notice, or is required to file notice, as a government securities broker or dealer pursuant to section 15C of the Securities Exchange Act (15 U.S.C. 78o-5) and Department of the Treasury rules under section 15C (17 CFR400.1(d) and part 401).
(b) Customer does not include a broker or dealer or a government securities broker or dealer.
(c) Government security has the same meaning as this term has in section 3(a)(42) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78c(a)(42)).
(d) Non-institutional customer means any customer other than:
(1) A bank, savings association, insurance company, or registered investment company;
(2) An investment adviser registered undersection 203 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80b-3); or
(3) Any entity (whether a natural person, corporation, partnership, trust, or otherwise) with total assets of at least $50 million.
A bank that is a government securities broker or dealer shall observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in the conduct of its business as a government securities broker or dealer.
In recommending to a customer the purchase, sale or exchange of a government security, a bank that is a government securities broker or dealer shall have reasonable grounds for believing that the recommendation is suitable for the customer upon the basis of the facts, if any, disclosed by the customer as to the customer’s other security holdings and as to the customer’s financial situation and needs.
