Education is power. There are not many other industries, that this concept could not be truer. The banking industry is the most regulated, compliance, governance driven industry in the country. This is actually for good reason; this is also one of the most lucrative fields a person can pursue regarding their overall career path. Here in lies the key reasons, with more rules and regulations, comes more need for us all to be aware of specifically when it comes to anti money laundering and the Office of Foreign Assets Control. These two areas are by far the largest overall risk exposure the banking industry has across the world. With so much overall activity and banking transactions occurring the need for constant risk assessment and compliance has never been higher than the present. The same risk management principles that the bank uses in traditional operational areas should be applied to assessing and managing BSA/AML risk.
A well-developed risk assessment will assist in identifying the bank’s BSA/AML risk profile. Understanding the risk profile enables the bank to apply appropriate risk management processes to the BSA/AML compliance program to mitigate risk. This risk assessment process enables management to better identify and mitigate gaps in the bank’s controls. The risk assessment should provide a comprehensive analysis of the BSA/AML risks in a concise and organized presentation, and should be shared and communicated with all business lines across the bank, board of directors, management, and appropriate staff; as such, it is a sound practice that the risk assessment be reduced to writing.
There are many effective methods and formats used in completing a BSA/AML risk assessment; therefore, examiners should not advocate a particular method or format. Bank management should decide the appropriate method or format, based on the bank’s particular risk profile. Whatever format management chooses to use for its risk assessment, it should be easily understood by all appropriate parties.
