Basel Guidelines on AML

Category: 

The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision has issued a set of guidelines to describe how banks should include risks related to money laundering and financing of terrorism within their overall risk management framework.

Prudent management of these risks, together with effective supervisory oversight, is critical in protecting the safety and soundness of banks as well as the integrity of the financial system. Failure to manage these risks can expose banks to serious reputational, operational, compliance and other risks.

United Bank of India - How Simple is projected as Complex

Banking is a very simple business.

You lend money and you recover money. In and Out. That's it.

And you don't need an automated system to tell you that you have not recovered money on your loans portfolio. there will be hundreds of people looking at data, reports, discussion, interactions with clients and so on who will know if there is a delay in payment.

A few examples
1. Did the Top Management not bother to see why the profits are being eroded.

2.Did Credit Risk Monitoring team not see that accounts had no activity during the annual reviews.

Shop at Big Bazaar and land up in a Timeshare presentation - A horrible shopping experience

I am not a regular shopper at the store, but went there while visiting a mall. So, here is a story on why I hated my recent trip to Big Bazaar. Shopping at big bazaar defies all business ethics. It faces a huge negative impact to its reputation risk. Its business risk is huge when it adopts unfair and unethical practices. Although, there is nothing legally wrong with what it does, but in the grey zone, it does a lot. And here's how.

Corporate Governance : Managing Diverse Expectations and achieving complete disclosures

Diverse Expectations
While the fundamentals of corporate governance apply across all substantial public and private enterprises, demands and capabilities of stakeholders vary. The family in family-businesses, institutional investors and private equity companies, shareholders, who contribute capital; third parties like auditors and rating agencies assess the risks; regulators, employees, customers, civil society - in short, Corporate Governance has different connotations for each of these segments.

Reputation Risk- Why you should snap all dealings with Snapdeal

"Why reputation is damaged when customers are taken for a ride"

It is the same story being repeated time and over again. Startups, larger companies, well established companies all dealing with customers, sometimes tend to take customers for granted.

Risk Appetite and linkage to stress testing and capital planning

Risk appetite, stress testing, and capital planning are inextricably linked because it is difficult to address any of the three concepts individually without addressing the others.

Risk appetite can be regarded as the most fundamental concept for the following reasons:

•It drives the other two:
o It is not as meaningful to analyze the implications of a stress test, or to plan how much capital the bank will require, without first reconciling risk-taking and business goals.

•It comes from the top:
o Risk appetite is a board-level initiative that permeates the entire organization.
