AML Compliance inadequacies and some outright failures have produced a myriad of enforcement actions, civil penalties, censures, excessive fines, and enough case studies to review for years.

Independent AML Audit is perhaps the most important “pillar” for AML compliance programs simply because it provides reasonable evidence that the program is either working or has flaws. Is any AML program perfect? Of course not, and that’s why the regulators leave it up to you to design your own risk-based program. There is no “operators’” manual, as only the financial institution knows its business best and can apply appropriate measures to comply with requirements.

Managing AML Audit Expectations will guide you toward audit readiness. Join us as we explore what to expect and how to understand audit findings – what they mean and in what context they apply. We’ll review common deficiencies and how to achieve sustainable corrections and discuss the lessons learned from penalty actions in the depository space.

Join us on July 23, 2024, at 2pm EST as we look ‘under the hood’ of an external audit and how you can better prepare for your next engagement.
