Overview of the webinar

Money laundering continues to be a national concern. High levels of drug-related activity and violence have drawn additional attention. Terrorist activities need to be considered as well. Perpetrators have adapted to banks efforts so banks cannot combat the money laundering with yesterday’s methods. Software is widely installed to identify specific patterns and “unusual” transactions. But the launderers know this and are constantly striving to create new patterns where their transactions are designed not to be flagged. Like in a game of chess, the advantage goes to the side that thinks the most moves ahead.
FinCEN has issued substantial new AML requirements focused on a major expansion of Know Your Customer into what is now Customer Due Diligence, CDD. It goes far beyond knowledge of the Customer Legal Entity to the Beneficial Owner of that entity and its Controlling Persons. It is focused beyond the initial customer acceptance step, requiring updating and on-going monitoring against baseline “normal” activity for the customer type. It is very unlikely that many banks already comply with these requirements.

  • Designing controls
  • Detecting money laundering attempts
  • Managing the Investigating of AML alerts
  • Analyzing controls improvement options
  • Understanding money launderers strategies and techniques
We will also cover the new CDD requirements, which are formidable. They will impact commercial, small business, private, and international banking areas of the Banks as well as compliance officers and areas currently performing KYC tasks. New research will be required on new entities never addressed before in customer acceptance. Follow-up will require new updating requirements and strong linkage of monitored transactions versus baseline.
