Tensions throughout the world continue to escalate, financial institutions can expect even greater regulatory scrutiny of their anti-money-laundering compliance programs. In turn, it will become even more challenging to strike a balance between corporate responsibility to address AML issues and concerns about the budget and resources required to fulfil regulatory mandates. Recent world events reinforce the need for continued vigilance on the (Anti-Money-Laundering Strategies) AML front.
The pressure to do more to stop money laundering continues to increase, and the job of AML monitoring and compliance has grown more complicated. Today’s large banks process hundreds of millions of transactions each day, and growth continues unchecked. At the same time, financial crime schemes grow ever more sophisticated.
In this environment, financial services organizations will be wise to take a fresh look at their AML systems with an eye toward expanding automation, improving performance, standardizing processes, and increasing transparency. Firms that invest wisely can create a compliance environment that meets immediate and future AML requirements and serves as a platform for improving overall governance and risk management.
