Non-Deposit Investment Sales Practices


Non-Deposit Investment Products (NDIP) Mystery Shopping


The sale of bank marketed investment non-deposit investment products (NDIP) is regulated by a number of government and industry regulatory agencies. One of the key purposes of this regulation is to avoid confusion between non-deposit and deposit products.

Kinēsis’ investment sales mystery-shopping program provides clients with detailed information about the investment sales practices, such as:

  • Appropriate referral practices,
  • Content and timing of oral disclosures,
  • Setting and circumstances of the sale,
  • Non-FDIC insurance coverage or guarantees,
  • Level of probing prior to a recommendation,
  • Suitability of recommendations,
  • Signage, and
  • Appropriateness of collateral material.
