Crossing the Border: How to Evaluate Countries’ AML Risk

By Samantha Mucha | May 1, 2018
Financial Institutions (“FIs”) are required to take a risk-based approach in their BSA/AML compliance programs. The risk-based approach provides FIs with a large degree of flexibility in determining their risk thresholds for certain types of customers and transactions. FIs are also required to document their approach by developing a Customer Risk Rating (“CRR”) methodology. International transactions carry different amounts of risk, depending on the jurisdiction. In order to evaluate the risks associated with connections to these jurisdictions, FIs should establish a country risk rating methodology to identify higher risk countries.

By Mohammad Faraj | April 18, 2018

A strong AML program operates in the background when things are going smoothly. However, when things go wrong, the consequences are usually severe and the weaknesses come to the forefront. FIs and nonbank financial institutions (“NBFIs”), such as Money Services Businesses (“MSBs”), would be well advised to take necessary steps to avoid regulatory penalties and enforcement actions.
