I am pleased to introduce three+one’s Summer Blog Series. As there are five Tuesdays in August, I will be addressing the top five questions the nation’s public and Higher Ed financial officers ask me as I travel across the country.

The five questions I’ll most likely be asked are:

  1. Given less bank branches and more efficient online banking services, how come my banking costs aren’t going down?

  2. Why are banks no longer interested in my deposits?

  3. Are there opportunities to earn income on my operating cash while still staying safe and liquid?

  4. Which is better when paying for bank services, hard fees or soft fees?

  5. In today’s banking environment, does it still make sense to issue banking RFPs?
