AML Risks in Correspondent Banking

Drug traffickers and other criminals can use foreign correspondent accounts to launder money, using shell companies to hide the true owners of correspondent accounts. Because the domestic bank is not necessarily familiar with the foreign correspondent financial institution’s customers, criminals and terrorists can more easily conceal the source and use of illicit funds.

Funds transfers are considered higher risk transactions in general, and they pose an even greater risk when they are foreign. Do you know how to assess the risk factors? Join us as we learn more about the AML risks in correspondent banking.
