Global AML & Sanctions Fines 2008-2018: Assessing the Impact

Over the past ten years, regulators across the US, Europe and APAC regions have issued $26 billion dollars in AML/KYC and sanctions-related fines.

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent high-profile scandals, global regulators are increasingly putting banks’ AML and KYC procedures under the microscope. This is clearly reflected in the significant monetary penalties that have been imposed on financial organizations worldwide for anti-money laundering violations.

Drawing on ten years of AML, KYC and sanctions fines data research, Fenergo has conducted an in-depth analysis of anti-financial crime penalties levied on banks worldwide due to non-compliance. In this podcast, you’ll learn:

  • The regulators that have issued the most for financial penalties;
  • The emerging trend of AML fines – and where they are heading in the future;
  • The international jurisdictions that have faced most scrutiny and the countries we expect to come under increasing scrutiny in the future;
  • How the latest technologies can help in the fight against financial crime (and regulator penalties).
