New York, NY (PressExposure) June 20, 2009 -- A New York Merchant Bank has named Edcomm Bankerâs Academy to provide Bank Secrecy Act and Anti Money Laundering Training for its Wholesale banking needs. The Bank has also opted to use Edcomm Bankerâs Academyâs own Learning Management System (LMS), Learning Link, for hosting and maintenance of BSA/AML for Wholesale Banking.
Bank Examiners have increased their scrutiny of any institution with poor BSA, AML, USA PATRIOT Act and OFAC training. The #1 reason cited for lowered compliance ratings by the Examiners is lack of adequate compliance training for appropriate personnel. The #2 reason cited is outdated or inaccessible policies and procedures.
Focus on BSA/AML for Wholesale Banking is Banker's Academy's comprehensive BSA /AML eLearning training program, customized specifically with examples and scenarios for Wholesale Banking staff. The program covers: all US BSA and AML laws and regulations with which Wholesale Banking staff must comply, red flags of money laundering, BSA/AML Compliance Program; Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) funds transfers, Money Services Businesses (MSBs); foreign relations, information sharing, Customer Identification Program (CIP), Customer Due Diligence (CDD), Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), OFAC Program, high risk persons and entities, high risk products and services and high risk geographic locations.
