BSA Strategies Assessment's Earn High Praise

The BSA Strategies Risk Assessment earns high praise not only from our financial industry clients but regulatory examiners as well. Recently, one of our clients underwent a Safety and Soundness examination. Onsite BSA/AML examiners provided the financial institution with input on their BSA risk assessment. One examiner stated “this is the best assessment I’ve ever seen”.

BSA Non-Compliance
is not an option

Due to the sheer volume of financial transactions processed through the U.S. financial system, primary responsibility for compliance with the BSA and the AML statutes rests with the financial institutions themselves.
The cornerstone of the federal government’s anti-money laundering (AML) efforts is the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). Enacted in 1970, the BSA is primarily a record keeping and reporting statute that is designed to ensure that banks and other financial institutions provide relevant information to law enforcement in a timely fashion. The BSA has been amended several times, most recently through passage of the USA PATRIOT Act in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy. Both the Secretary of the Treasury, through the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), and the federal banking agencies, have issued regulations implementing the BSA, including regulations requiring all banks to have a Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) compliance program, and to file reports such as suspicious activity reports (SARs) and currency transaction reports (CTRs)...

While not required by specific regulation, but as a matter of sound banking practice and in order to ensure compliance, banks should establish and maintain an effective, written OFAC program commensurate with their OFAC risk profile (based on products, services, customers, and geographic locations)....

Regulatory Issues can be Complex, Confusing, and Time Consuming

BSA Strategies offers you the advantage of having a team of highly experienced professionals guiding your financial institution to compliance. While assessment may identify higher risk customers, products, or services, this does not mean that you are prohibited from taking on that risk. It does mean, however, that you must have a process in place to manage that risk accordingly. BSA Strategies can help you define your risks and develop a strategy to monitor, manage, and control the risk.
