New York, NY, United States, 2008/03/25 - Together with SightSpan, The Edcomm Group Bankerís Academy has created a training program that focuses on cover payments.
Cover payments present a way for financial institutions to transfer funds to other institutions, with which they have no direct relationship. While cover payments are fundamental to the international wire transfer and payment system, they also expose intermediary banks to BSA/AML and OFAC risks.
Focus on Cover Payments is a computer-based, free tutorial provided by Edcomm Bankerís Academy. The program teaches about cover payments using easy-to-understand language in an interactive, self-paced format. Focus on Cover Payments includes an introduction to funds transfers; how cover payments work; BSA/AML and OFAC risks to beneficiary banks, intermediary banks and beneficiary banks; and how to minimize those risks.
SightSpan offers a suite of risk-based solutions within the global compliance and fraud business areas, including BSA, AML, OFAC and Trade Compliance. The organization helps industry leaders solve strategic issues and focuses on project and program execution. SightSpan addresses sensitive and mission critical situations in a professional and confidential manner; the company can quickly and effectively manage high risk projects requiring immediate corrective action.
