Efforts to stem money laundering have resulted in more challenging compliance requirements on financial institutions and aggressive prosecutions of those that fail to comply. Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations now require that financial institutions have comprehensive AML programs that are reviewed periodically by independent AML experts.

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

TrustedPeer, Inc., a private company connecting business professionals with an online network of leading business experts, announces the launch of seven of North America’s top experts in Anti-Money Laundering on its unique business consulting platform at http://www.trustedpeer.com.

Money laundering is a global problem that supports violent drug traffickers and transnational criminal organizations. A recent U.S. Senate report estimated that $1.6 trillion – or 2.7 percent of the world’s GDP – was laundered in 2009 (the most recent year for which an estimate is available). “Illicit funds are directly responsible for the violence and deaths caused by criminal groups around the world,” according to the Senate’s report.

Efforts to stem money laundering have resulted in increasingly stiffer compliance requirements on financial institutions and aggressive prosecutions of those that fail to comply. HSBC Bank, for example, was fined $1.9 billion for widespread failures involving laundered money from Mexican and Colombian drug cartels.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations require that financial institutions have comprehensive AML programs that are reviewed periodically by independent AML experts.

Each of TrustedPeer’s AML Experts has more than 20 years experience in industry, government and Anti-Money Laundering compliance and is a recognized leader in his or her specialty within AML. They consult with clients across all relevant industries after careers that included high-ranking positions in the U.S. Departments of State, Treasury and Commerce, the U.S. Customs Service, the FBI, the IRS and Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
