Opening Account Procedures and Monitoring the Transactions

Your financial institution is full of account holders who require many types of services. The BSA exam identifies many services and account holders as high risk for money laundering. We will cover the high risk account holders and services listed in the BSA exam manual and begin to see their impact into our AML program. We will look at what makes an account holder or service high risk. How to open the accounts for CIP and what extra due diligence is required when the account holder is high risk. What increased numbers of high risk account holders can do to your overall risk rating.
