AML KYC Foreign Correspondent Bank (FCB) Risk Evaluation Management (REM) Lead

Locations: Warsaw, Mazovia Job Function: Compliance and Control Employee Status: Regular Job ID: 20187075

The Global AML KYC Foreign Correspondent Bank (FCB) Program is focused on the effective execution of the customer due diligence process, specifically for FCB clients. Working with KYC-related representatives, the group coordinates the timely completion of an FCB client's Periodic Review.  The effective execution of the customer due diligence process for Citi’s FCB client base relies on coordination between the Global AML KYC organization and KYC-related representatives.

FCB customer due diligence records are created and maintained on a strategic on-boarding platform, which includes workflow functionality to facilitate information being incorporated into client records, as well as the subsequent necessary levels of review and approval.  The due diligence process for FCB is facilitated by multiple teams in Global KYC consisting of analysts assigned to a given client record who work together to ensure that the various components of the client’s record are complete and up to date.

The AML KYC FCB Risk Evaluation Management (REM) Team reviews the potential AML risks associated with certain prospective and existing clients so that the client does not present undue legal, regulatory or reputational risk to Citi.  To ensure completeness and accuracy of a client record, REM works in partnership with the Periodic Transaction Review (PTR) Team, the AML Program Assessment (AMLPA) Team, the Due Diligence Unit (DDU), and KYC Business Owners during periodic review of the client.

The primary role of an AML KYC FCB REM Lead is to manage a team consisting of approximately (+/- 12) KYC FCB REM Analysts who perform compliance reviews of the overall client records that require AML Compliance review/approval.  The REM Analyst reviews the client profile in the context of potential associated risks to assess and understand the level of AML risk posed by the client to Citi, in accordance with the framework set by the Global KYC Policy and its supporting Standards. This also includes a quality assurance check of the overall record for full completeness and accuracy.
