Wire Transfer Instruction Updates Needed – October 1, 2018
Beginning October 1, 2018, the bank name "ZB, N.A." will be changing to "Zions Bancorporation, N.A." To avoid transaction delays, please notify your international business partners to use the new bank name when sending international wire transfers and letters of credit to your account(s) at Vectra Bank Colorado. This is only an update to the bank name. The SWIFT Bank Identifier Code (BIC) will remain the same.
What do I need to do?
If your company received international wires in the last 12 months – Please be sure to contact your international partners with the updated name on your wire transfer instructions before October 1, 2018.
Your business partners should be instructed to continue to use the name ZB, N.A. through the end of the business day on Friday, September 28, 2018. The name Zions Bancorporation, N.A. should be used thereafter.
How should I notify my business partners?
Phone calls, encrypted email or traditional postal mail notifications are good methods to consider when communicating this change. We do not advise the use of unencrypted email to notify partners of payment information. Using a safe form of communication may help you, your vendors and clients avoid Business Email Compromise (BEC) fraud, a common form of fraud.
Help protect your vendors, clients and your business by choosing a safe form of notification for this change. More information about BEC can be found at: http://www.ic3.gov/media/2016/160614.aspx.
Increase Federal Funds Rate
On Wednesday, September 26, 2018 the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), announced the decision to increase the target range for the federal funds rate to 2.00–2.25 percent. This change is effective immediately. Therefore, Vectra will increase Prime by 0.25% to 5.25%.
