The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) is responsible for the end-to-end suspicious activity reporting process, which entails monitoring for, investigating, and, when appropriate, reporting suspiciousactivity. As part of this process, the FIU develops and implements automated transaction monitoring rules, reports, and other processes designed to identify activity potentially indicative of criminal behavior; investigates potentially suspicious financial activity; and, when appropriate, files suspicious activity reports (SARs) with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), part of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and/or refers matters to our compliance partners for review and reporting globally. The FIU performs a critical role in ensuring compliance with the Bank Secrecy and USA PATRIOT Acts and provides law enforcement with key information for the investigation and prosecution of money laundering and terrorist financing, credit card fraud, identity theft, and other criminal activity.
A successful analyst on the FIU team will:
Conduct a time-sensitive, meticulous investigation and analysis of each instance of potential Anti-Money Laundering activity and/or suspicious financial activity across multiple jurisdictions and countries, utilizing a wide variety of research and analytical tools;
Produce a well-written report detailing and analyzing the potentially suspicious activity for review and, when appropriate, prepare a filing with FinCEN;
Build strong relationships with strategic partners across the unit to ensure effective coordination of investigations;
Demonstrate an ability to work efficiently with an attention to detail in investigations, analysis, and writing.
