Risk Assessment

The goal of the coverage assessment exercise delivered by Consortix is to evaluate the AML/CTF risks associated with the FI’s customers, products, services and geographies, and to understand how the FI's transaction-monitoring model aligns with those risks.  The assessment will be leveraged and limited to identify any gaps or opportunities to enhance the coverage provided by the FI’s automated transaction monitoring system.

The analysis is targeted to identify potential gaps and areas for enhancement based on an understanding of the following:

regulatory environment

assessment of the current state of the transaction monitoring programs

knowledge of common money laundering risk factors and monitoring methods

Based on the results of the coverage assessment, recommendations were derived to further enhance the AML program’s ability to monitor the FI’s transactions for suspicious activity.
