Understanding Correspondent Banking AML Risks
Correspondent banks act as intermediaries, facilitating transfers and transactions on behalf of other banks, which are often located in other countries. Although correspondent banking facilitates wider inclusion in the global financial system, it can pose risks, as financial transactions are carried out on behalf of external customers. Anti-money laundering (AML) processes and reporting can also be difficult, with information being shared across borders and complicated transaction architectures making it difficult to monitor payments.
The ACAMS Correspondent Banking Certificate will enable professionals to understand the risks they should be aware of and their associated red flags, AML reporting requirements, and the penalties for non-compliance.
