Remediating the AML Framework – A Tale of Two Banks

Drawing on real case studies, Ms. Wood will discuss the advantages of proactively building a remedial framework to combat money laundering and sanctions violations in terms of maintaining confidentiality and ensuring internal discussions and disagreements remain that way. She will contrast that case with a bank that was forced to remediate its AML and sanctions compliance programs in full view of the regulators by including them in internal stakeholder meetings and decision-making. Ms. Wood will further provide advice for maximizing proactive remediation efforts and how to demonstrate best practices to regulators.
