BSA Risk Assessment: Documenting BSA/AML Risks to Comply with Regulatory Expectations
Duration: 60 Minutes
There has been an increase in regulatory scrutiny over how financial institutions document their BSA/AML risk controls in the risk assessment. Even though financial institutions have been documenting risk assessments over a long period of time, the expectations have moved from a generalist approach to a more meaningful and specific approach that truly outlines the specifics of the BSA/AML program. Regulators look to the bank to provide strong evidence that the risk assessment represents the BSA/AML program including customers, products & services, and geography. BSA/AML Risk Assessments that describe in depth the inherent risk, mitigating factors and residual risk are essential in a bank's strategic development and Board of Director's governance.
