Compliance & Regulatory Consulting
BRG experts work closely with clients to strengthen governance around anti-money laundering programs to minimize the risks posed by international commerce in a heightened regulatory environment.
Complying with domestic and international banking and money laundering laws and regulations presents a constant challenge to financial institutions, corporations, private equity firms, hedge funds, casinos, and pari-mutuel wagering facilities. BRG professionals work with clients to avoid the pitfalls associated with compliance shortcomings in Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC), and other financial sanctions regimes.
BRG experts work closely with clients to strengthen governance around anti-money laundering programs to minimize the risks posed by international commerce in a heightened regulatory environment. Drawing on decades of experience, our teams are skilled at evaluating know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money compliance programs, including policies and procedures; assessing technology, such as interdiction and transaction-monitoring systems; and undertaking due diligence on high-risk customers and counter-parties to evaluate their suitability for a relationship.
Our approach allows us to thoroughly investigate potential violations of anti-money laundering laws, including the U.S. Patriot Act, BSA–AML, OFAC, terror financing, and other sanctions regulations. We have the experience and capabilities to undertake large-scale transaction reviews and lookbacks, conduct KYC research and analysis, prepare suspicious activity reports and other required filings, and advise clients and their counsel with self-disclosing violations to regulators, as well as performing independent periodic reviews of BSA-AML programs.
