Anti-Money Laundering & Bank Secrecy Act Consulting
FTI Consulting, as a leading independent consulting firm free of conflicts, is a preferred provider of critical services to financial institutions. Banks and other organizations face unprecedented external scrutiny and pressure to serve as the first line of defense in the global war on money laundering and terrorist financing. To avoid potentially severe negative consequences, including significant monetary penalties, regulator-mandated consent orders or shareholder litigation, institutions must proactively design robust compliance programs for anti-money laundering (“AML”), the Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”), the USA PATRIOT Act, and Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) regulations. FTI Consulting offers the banking and regulatory expertise required by global institutions to implement effective compliance programs and to respond to regulatory agency inquiries, examinations and enforcement.
