Day to Day:

Everyday the AML Investigations Team receives systemic alerts from our AML Transaction monitoring system or branch referrals that they are required to investigate. The investigator reviews the customer and activity to determine if they can justify why the alert is not risky to the bank to clear the alert. For alerts that can’t be justified as "not risky", the investigator writes a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) which is filed with FINCEN, a regulatory agency. SARs are used by law enforcement agencies across the country.
