Accordingly, a risk management program will help to identify and narrow down where the focus of attention should be. By identifying risks and basing decisions on factors that are related to higher risk elements, attention to addressing higher risk elements can be done more efficiently and more productively for the organization. A good AML Risk Management program will also better satisfy regulatory requirements.
