In providing guidance to life insurance businesses, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) noted, “as with other financial services products, there is a risk that the funds used to purchase life insurance may be the proceeds of crime. There is also a risk, even limited, that funds withdrawn from life insurance contracts could be used to fund terrorism.” Additionally, other types of insurance firms must remain vigilant to changing requirements, based on the regions where they do business. For example, OFAC has also recently issued a new framework for companies that do business in the U.S. to improve their approach to sanctions compliance.
In today’s rapidly changing regulatory landscape, it is growing more challenging for insurance companies to manage financial crime risk. Global anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CTF) regulations have grown more complex and severe, making insurance firms revisit their compliance approach to ensure processes are regulator-ready. Global and domestic insurance firms of every type must constantly screen policy-holders, network partners and the beneficiaries of claims or risk fines and reputational damage.
