The Financial Conduct Authority Key Developments

The Financial Conduct Authority Imposes Penalties on Sonali Bank (UK) and its Former Money-Laundering Reporting Officer

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has fined Sonali Bank (UK) (SBUK) £3,250,600 and has imposed a restriction, preventing it from accepting deposits from new customers for 168 days. It has also fined the bank's former money-laundering reporting officer (MLRO), Steven Smith, £17,900 and prohibited him from performing the MLRO or compliance oversight functions at regulated firms. Despite having previously received clear warnings about serious weaknesses in its AML controls, SBUK failed to maintain adequate AML systems between August 20, 2010, and July 21, 2014. The FCA found serious and systemic weaknesses affected almost all levels of its AML control and governance structure, including its senior management team, its money laundering reporting function, the oversight of its branches and its AML policies and procedures. Both SBUK and Mr. Smith agreed to settle at an early stage and therefore qualified for a 30% (stage 1) discount.
