Job-Specific BSA Training for Lending Department

Lenders are often the first line of defense in identifying and reporting suspicious activity at your institution, but the transaction types and method for originating a new loan is often very different from the types of transactions and account opening methods used on the deposit frontline. Therefore, it’s crucial that lending department staff receive tailored initial and annual training on BSA/AML requirements and fully understand what is expected during their day-to-day duties.

This session will detail BSA/AML rule components, including red flags for mortgage and commercial loan fraud, CIP documentation, CDD rules-including documenting beneficial ownership, OFAC screening, CTR completion, and much more! Arm your lending department with the knowledge and tools needed to comply with each of these critical BSA requirements.
