12 Cool Things About BSA Analysts

Bank Secrecy Act Analysts? Compliance? Your friends may think your job as a BSA Analyst is boring, but we know that’s not the case at all. It’s actually fascinating. Money laundering? Bank fraud? It sounds like a movie. In fact BSA Analysts and Compliance Officers have one of the best, most underrated jobs around. To prove it, here’s a list of the 11 best things about being a BSA Analyst:

1). We’re basically secret agents. We just use that business casual disguise to throw off the bad guys.

2). We go incognito pretty much anywhere. No need to get nervous if you unexpectedly find yourself in the elevator with a company bigwig – he’ll assume you’re a delivery person.  He has no idea who you are.

3). We speak a foreign language. You can talk to other analysts in public and people think you’re speaking another language, which is totally intriguing and mysterious (seriously, all those acronyms and terms do NOT sounds like English).

4). Business System Analysts?  People sometimes think we work in IT as “Business System Analysts.” Close enough. We don’t correct them.

5). We’re superheroes. Our friends’ kids think we’re superheroes because we told them we catch the bad guys. We don’t correct them, either.

6). We’re totally up on the latest trends (never mind that they happen to be the latest FinCen regulatory trends). We’re trendy!

7). We’re also risky. We deal with risk every. single. day. You know, kind of like cliff divers and brain surgeons. Risque.

8). In our world, the customer is NOT always right. We don’t have to smile if we don’t want to. We don’t have to be polite to people who bring in their jar full of pennies and dump it on the counter. Bless those tellers and bankers.

9). We deal with the best kind of laundering. No sorting, folding or ironing required.

10). Little things we do go unnoticed. Although annoying at times, this can often work in our favor. No one accuses you of taking the last cookie in the break room— because they all forget you even work there (umm… unless there’s a compliance crisis. THEN they seem to know your name, huh?).

11). Historical research. You just had to watch Leonardo DiCaprio in “Catch me if you Can” for research. No really, it was for historical industry research. And just to be sure you didn’t miss anything you watched it again. Extra credit!

But most of all….

12). Our work actually means something. At the end of the day our work is important. We protect our company and our customers from falling victim to illegal activity and fraud. We help people. And that’s pretty darn cool.
