Financial Crime Business Wide Risk Assessment

Based on our recent relevant experience P2 FinCrime were asked to support a challenger bank

The Situaton
  • The organisation had received negative feedback following a recent audit and subsequent regulatory visit
  • As a result, they were initiating a review of key Financial Crime controls
  • A key foundation stone was the Financial Crime business Wide Risk assessment.
  • Historically the Financial Crime elements of the Business Wide Risk Assessment had been embedded in a wider exercise
  • It was therefore difficult to establish the specific Financial Crime risk profile the business was facing due to them being combined with other risks
  • Following on from that actions to mitigate/resolve FC specific risks were not easily identified and could not be evaluated, and changes subsequently tracked.
How P2 FinCrime helped
  • Reviewed the existing BWRA methodology to provide the framework to be adopted
  • Designed a Financial Crime BWRA approach that was appropriate to the size of the firm
  • Established the key drivers for Financial Crime risk across
    • Anti-Money Laundering
    • Sanctions
    • Bribery & Corruption
    • Fraud
  • Trained key bank staff on the new approach, drivers for change and objectives
  • Designed and held initial workshops with key divisional leaders to drive out specific risk areas for each division
  • Led follow up workshops that took the identified risks and sought to design mitigation strategies in the short, medium and long term
  • Documented all approaches, investigations and findings to a standard that would meet internal and external scrutiny
  • Supported the design of the BUA process to maintain the FC BWRA in future.
The Outcome
  • As a result of the review and workshops, several control gaps were identified by team members and actions taken to mitigate in the short term and close in the medium term
  • The bank now has a tried and tested Financial Crime BWRA framework that is the foundation for identifying, evaluating, reporting, tracking and mitigating related risks
  • It has an up to date view of the Financial Crime risks it faces
  • The bank has used the FC BWRA results to support investment cases that mitigate and ultimately resolve risks that are outside appetite
  • The new baseline has been reported to the bank risk committee and the approach and outcomes have been shared with the appropriate internal and external stakeholders.
