Global Financial Crimes Compliance

The proliferation of financial crimes through money laundering, human trafficking, terrorism, bribery and corruption, and fraud is a continuing challenge for institutions of all types and sizes, and geographical footprints.  A robust control infrastructure leveraging sound business processes to both mitigate current risk and emerging risk is required. Complacency is unacceptable to law enforcement and regulators, and will only lead to enforcement activity, including fines against the institution. Shareholders, boards, and senior management need to understand and make the investment required to implement and maintain effective financial crimes programs.  And financial crimes leaders need to know both the requirements and how to effectively implement financial crimes programs.

Treliant’s highly experienced leadership and team of global financial crimes subject matter experts can help you to navigate the rough waters to robust and sustainable financial crimes programs – AML/BSA; Global Sanctions (OFAC); Anti-Bribery/Corruption; Antitrust. Our team of subject matter experts consists of former compliance and internal audit executives and professionals, regulators, federal prosecutors, and other industry practitioners.
