Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will explain the concept of Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD), including EDD time tables and checklist. Attendees will learn how to conduct Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) that will satisfy the auditors.

Why Should You Attend:

In the last four years we have seen some of the highest fines levied on financial institutions because they did not follow proper customer due diligence measures. Wachovia was fined $160 million dollars in 2010, HSBC was filed $1.9 billion in 2012 and The Reserve Bank of India penalized 22 banks for violating Know-Your-Customer norms and Anti-Money Laundering guidelines in 2013. EDD is a relatively new concept and a hot topic for auditors and most institutions, especially smaller institutions, don’t really know what it entails.

This webinar will help by giving points as to what the auditors want in an EDD so you are not wasting your time and resources and still keeping the auditors happy. Also, by conducting proper EDD reviews your institution can confirm that all Customer Due Diligence (CDD) information is up to date as well as accurate and ensures that it is not being taken advantage of by individuals/entities that would try to exploit it for nefarious purposes.

Topic Background:

The purpose of EDD reviews is to follow up on high risk bank customers and determine if they are conducting the expected activity in the account. Rules and regulations for foreign banking relationships have changed in recent years along with high risk customers such as MSBs. Auditors want to ensure that high risk customers’ accounts are being thoroughly reviewed consistently and proper EDD reviews are their way of ensuring this practice is taking place in the financial institution.

Another point is by properly conducting EDD, it will not only keep the auditors happy but will strengthen the security of your institution. By passing all audits no negative press will come to your institution. Upholding a proper EDD review system also guarantees that any merger will be simplified.

EDD reviews will also assist from a marketing perspective. By knowing your customers you will know who you can market to and what type of institution you are/want to become. Some institutions prefer high risk customers while others shy away from the challenges that accompany them. But with the challenges comes great profit potential. If you can see the risk of the high risk customer through an EDD review you will be able to see if you want to market your services to more or less high risk customers.
