Date:  Wednesday, April 19, 2017
Time:  12:00 PM-1:00 PM EST

Regulatory expectations to satisfy Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations continue to evolve in the U.S. and an essential component of a risk-based BSA/AML program includes the responsibility for institutions to adequately know its customer base.

Customer Due Diligence (CDD) in general, is an initial assessment of the customer identity and profile. Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) is only needed if the customer is deemed as ‘higher risk’ after CDD has been conducted, e.g. for politically exposed persons. Additional questioning and verification is essential to ensure legitimacy of person or entity, its transactions and funds.

At this live webinar, a seasoned BSA compliance officer, Mr. Joe Soniat, CFE, CAMS, from Union First Market Bank will demonstrate how to improve efficiencies within EDD review process, and provide other vital information to financial services firms that have high risk clients to keep them out of trouble with FinCEN, and the U.S. Department of Justice.
