Trade products are a lucrative area which many banks now recognize as having a great deal of profit making potential. At the same time, they are need to work out how to tackle areas of concern identified by both regulators and the industry itself such as money laundering, and terrorist financing. No bank wants to be on the end of the extreme punitive fines and reputational damage that can stem from deficient or ineffective controls, and as such compliance in this area needs to be as strong as possible.
