Food for Thought: Financial Crime Audit – Focus Areas for 2019
"Food for Thought" is a series showcasing insights and best practices from Exiger's roundtables, where senior professionals and thought leaders come together to discuss the latest industry developments over a bite to eat.
The emergence of new financial crime risks, sparked by factors such as technological innovation, PSD2 and open banking, mean that the coming year won't simply be business as usual for internal audit functions. Collaboration and benchmarking are critical if auditors are to keep pace with their businesses.
In this context, senior financial crime audit professionals from 11 leading financial institutions shared the risk types and products they will focus on in their 2019 audit plan at a recent roundtable discussion in London.
Top 5 risk types:
- Customer due diligence
- Governance / policy & procedures
- Anti-bribery & corruption
- Transaction monitoring systems & SARs
Banking products of most concern:
- Correspondent banking
- Trade finance (including know your customers’ customers – KYCC)
