Another Fine Mess: A Global Research Report on Financial Institution Fines and Enforcement Actions
3 April 2020
Fenergo has published its latest analysis of global regulatory fines for AML, KYC, sanctions, MiFID, and data privacy violations against financial institutions.
The results outline trends in regulatory fines since the last report in 2018 and draw comparisons with activity from the previous 12 years.
Between October 2018 and December 2019, regulators across the US, Europe, APAC and the Middle East have levied over USD $10 billion in financial penalties against financial institutions for AML/KYC and sanctions-related violations and a further USD$82.7 million for data privacy and MiFID violations. For AML, KYC and sanctions violations, global financial institutions have paid out over USD$36 billion in fines since the financial crisis in 2008.
