- Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Advisory and Audits
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network or (FinCEN) now applies the BSA-AML and SAR (Suspicious Activity Report) reporting requirements to independent mortgage lenders and servicers, in addition to traditional regulated depository institutions.
Quest Advisors’ advisory and consulting expertise, conducting reviews of the client’s operational processes, procedures, and controls, determines gaps that need correction or improvement to comply with these requirements. Subsequently, Quest Advisors can help develop required procedures and recommend opportunities for improvement.
