Job Summary:

We're seeking an AML Investigator who is responsible for performing independent reviews and analysis of possible suspicious activity to ensure compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act and the USA Patriot Act.

Additionally, you may complete defined tasks to support the creation of Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR) and other relevant documentation related to non-SAR filing decisions. And you will recommend a course of action for most events, while occasionally seeking guidance from a manager or higher-level investigator in unusual or uncommon situations.

Major responsibilities:


  • Performs AML alert and case review, including research, to decide whether suspicious activity exists.

  • Works within established FIU performance timeframes and in accordance with quality standards set forth within the FIU procedures.

  • Ensures alert and case determinations are appropriate, fully supported, and clearly documented.


  • Maintains effective working relationships with key business partners, including Financial Crime Risk Management, to obtain and validate client information.

  • Provides good customer service.

  • Minimum of 1 to 3 years of direct work experience in AML risk analysis or equivalent, with related experience in other areas of banking and preferably in the financial services industry.

  • Good organizational, verbal, written, interpersonal, and analytical skills

  • Must be able to multi-task, adapt well to changing priorities, and effectively prioritize work to meet critical deadlines.

  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, demanding, and changing environment

  • Basic working knowledge of AML/BSA laws and regulations relative to money laundering and terrorist financing. Experience applying this knowledge in assessing transaction activity of high-risk customer accounts is preferred.

  • CAMS certification is desirable.
