For BWIS investment accounts, the balances held by any primary owner in an eligible BWIS investment account who is also an owner of the Bank of the West Premier Checking account will be included in the combined balance calculation.

Balance information for BWIS investment accounts may be disclosed to any co-owner of the Bank of the West Premier Checking account. Additionally, fiduciaries assume responsibility for ensuring that any fiduciary account that may be combined in the Program will not be a violation of fiduciary duty. The date range of the Bank of the West Premier Checking account's statement cycle will be used to calculate the combined average monthly balance in the eligible associated checking, money market, savings, CD and IRA accounts. The prior month-end balances will be used for the eligible BWIS investment accounts. For the Bank to determine whether the combined monthly balance requirement has been met, BWIS will provide the prior end-of-month balance information for all eligible investment accounts as received from affiliates and third party providers.
