Correspondent Banking relationships are vulnerable to money laundering and terrorism financing because they involve a bank carrying out financial transactions on behalf of another bank's customers.
Correspondent Banking due diligence or KYC (CB-KYC) is a vital and particularly challenging business process.
CB-KYC is a time-consuming and largely manual process that requires the attention of experienced analysts in the desk-based research, sifting, review and recording of Correspondent Bank questionnaires and policies and the performance of other Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks and verifications leading to the eventual AML risk determination.
