Read Frequently Asked Questions

This course will give attendees an understanding of the importance and application of an institutional risk assessment and how it can be used to enhance existing AML/BSA risk mitigation procedures. Participants will also learn to develop, monitor and maintain an appropriate risk profile in line with your business operations.

Why Should You Attend:

  • What is the risk profile of your institution? Can you answer this with any level of certainty?
  • If you can, have you substantiated this position?
  • When was the last time you validated this conclusion?

Your risk profile is determinative of how you conduct business and how your regulator looks at, examines and identifies your institution in regard to the overall financial services arena. Your risk profile is made up of underlying factors that are the foundation of your business model and the purpose of your institution. If you are unable to identify the factors that make up your business, i.e. the products and services, the geographic arenas in which you function, the types of customers you deal with and the things that make you different, then can you truly defend your risk profile in an audit?

If you’ve failed in developing, monitoring and maintaining an appropriate risk profile, then you open your institution to further examination, intrusion, business interruption and possible regulatory action. One of the worst things that can happen during an audit is to have your regulator tell you that the risk assessment on which you’ve built your risk mitigation policies and procedures is inadequate for your company. Not only do you put yourself in a position in which you will find yourself scrambling to justify each decision made regarding your existing policies and procedures but you place yourself at a grave disadvantage which could lead to the expenditure of additional funds and resources that would be better spent expanding and enhancing your business.

This webinar will provide you sufficient understanding on:

  • How to identify, evaluate and assess the underlying factors that make up your institution’s risk profile

Topic Background:

What is institutional risk assessment? In short it’s an impersonal look at your AML/BSA risk management program’s flaws, scars, holes and ungainly disfigurements. It’s an opportunity to review how you conduct your business from the inside out and to fill in the blanks, plug your holes and strengthen internal controls and systems in order to expand and further your risk management procedures and processes to protect your business and its reputation. Let’s not forget that your regulator is looking at it too.
