Bank Secrecy Act/Anti Money Laundering (BSA/AML) Supervision
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) bank examiner/specialist opportunities in the Large Bank Supervision Department, the Midsize and Community Bank Supervision Department, and at OCC Headquarters in the Bank Supervision Policy Department.
In this mission-critical role, you will assess banks’ compliance with regulations connected to the USA Patriot Act, Bank Secrecy Act, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and money laundering.
Large Bank Supervision
Large banks supervised by the OCC generally have assets of $50 billion to $3 trillion, with examination teams on-site in cities across the country. BSA/AML examination work in the Large Bank Supervision Department can be exceptionally challenging and exceptionally rewarding, as examiners/specialists have significant opportunities to develop and expand their skills in a variety of complex business and product types, as well as to interact with bank personnel who are experts in their field.
Midsize and Community Bank Supervision
Midsize and community banks supervised by the OCC are in cities throughout the United States. Bank examiner/specialist positions for these institutions, which generally have assets between $1 billion and $50 billion, are in cities where the OCC maintains field offices. Many midsize and community banks have complex and varied operations, particularly with regard to products and services and the customers and geographies they serve, which require commensurate BSA/AML examination skills.
Bank Supervision Policy Department
The Bank Supervision Policy Department is located at OCC headquarters in Washington, D.C. The department develops and interprets supervisory policies to address sound practices and emerging risks, and provides on-site and off-site examination support. The department collaborates with the other federal banking agencies to develop consistent examination procedures and supervisory approaches. BSA/AML specialists in this department may have the opportunity to represent the OCC, speaking for the agency at national and local banker meetings and trade association conferences.
If you are a highly competent expert in BSA/AML laws and regulations, with a proven ability to identify and resolve problems, you should consider a BSA/AML bank examination career with the OCC.
