  • De-Risking Dilemma: How the Financial Industry Can Collaborate to Manage Risk
    De-Risking Dilemma: How the Financial Industry Can Collaborate to Manage Risk Speaker: Adrián Sánchez B. Recorded: Jul 27 2017 59 mins
    Wholesale de-risking is creating a boomerang effect for Caribbean and Central American banks that are caught as pawns as a result of conflicting global expectations. On the one hand, regulators expect global financial institutions to screen their clients for potential ties to terrorist activities, money laundering and other financial crimes. On the other hand, they urge banks to resist the temptation to completely walk away from risky areas such as money services businesses (MSBs) and correspondent banking. Correspondent banking allows Caribbean and Central American banks access to the international payment system, facilitating money transfers through transactions such as wire transfers, check clearing and currency exchange, affecting entire economies. How can banks, regulators and lawmakers work together to manage risk and continue serving their local economies?

    Learning objectives:
    •Why do banks engage in wholesale de-risking and what are the implications?
    •How can wholesale de-risking be bad for banks?
    •How can we facilitate more effective risk management across the financial industry?

    As banks and other financial services companies seek to improve compliance management systems, many are considering the use of algorithmic and other artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to augment or replace current systems.
