Why Should You Attend:

An effective BSA/AML compliance program controls risks associated with the institution’s products, services, customers, entities, and geographic locations; therefore, an effective risk assessment should be an ongoing process, not a one-time exercise. Monitoring your risks includes monitoring your transactions, especially your high-risk transactions.

Per the FFIEC Manual: The development of the BSA/AML risk assessment generally involves two steps: first, identify the specific risk categories (i.e., products, services, customers, entities, transactions, and geographic locations) unique to the institution: and second, conduct a more detailed analysis of the data identified to better assess the risk within these categories. Several examples of a system of internal controls will help you document your monitoring program.

The management of compliance risk requires a thorough evaluation of the customer base. Determining the risk rating of a customer – especially those seen as High Risk – plays an important role in the construction of a complete and accurate BSA/AML Risk Assessment. The determination of high-risk Customers may involve a wide array of variables, carefully rated and scored, or a single variable that overrides all others. The factors to calculate high risk – or any risk – must drive an on-boarding system – computer-based or manual. How many high-risk customers must an institution have before the meaning of high risk becomes meaningless? The USA Patriot Act has laid out the requirements for Customer Due Diligence and Enhanced Due Diligence for high-risk customers. The recently implemented FinCEN Customer Due Diligence Rule which formalized the concept of beneficial ownership, provides guidance for the management of high-risk customers. This webinar will examine the regulatory background behind the determination of high risk, weighting and rate factors leading to high-risk scoring, and asking when a high-risk customer is too hot to handle, what is the risk appetite of the institution.
