Most AML compliance professionals are aware that they must record their KYC findings (and keep them)as per the provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act. Nevertheless, many still struggle to form a well-structured summary of their research and see this requirement as more of a chore than an integral part of their job. Many AML professionals also overlook the fact that a badly written summary can lead to a number of potential issues dealing with third parties, not to mention the regulator.
It is essential that all members of your AML compliance team understand the benefits of writing a good KYC summary, the basics of how to structure and focus that summary, as well as the potential consequences of a summary that is not well written.
