Under an enterprise risk management program, certain industries, geographies, or business activities may be identified as presenting higher than normal risk characteristics. Risk management procedures differentiate based on a customer’s risk profile. It starts by taking steps to ensure you know who you are dealing with, understanding their activities and assessing their risk to your institution.  

What is your organization doing now to identify and manage higher risk customers? What practical controls should be in place to minimize risk?   In this webinar, we will provide practical guidance and regulatory expectations for banking high risk businesses.  We’ll   outline best practices for small banks and organizations for evaluating customer risk and enhancing the institution’s oversight and operational processes regarding high-risk customers.

Attendees to this banking webinar will learn:

  • The four categories of high-risk industries
  • Understanding and monitoring customer risk
  • Enhanced due diligence requirements for high-risk customers
  • Regulatory expectations for banking high risk businesses
  • How to reconcile regulatory guidance with the real-world risk of banking MSBs
  • Hidden sources of chargebacks
  • KYC and risk rating functions for high risk customers
