UK regulator steps up compliance rules for HSBC
Tuesday - 12/11/2012, 1:39pm EST
LONDON (AP) - Britain's financial regulator says it is taking steps to force HSBC to improve its legal compliance after the bank agreed to pay $1.9 billon to settle a U.S. money laundering probe.
The Financial Services Authority said Tuesday that HSBC must establish a board committee with a mandate to oversee matters relating to anti-money laundering and terrorist financing.
It also said it has required HSBC to appoint a group money laundering officer approved by the regulator to ensure that the company complies with all anti-money laundering requirements.
HSBC agreed to a record settlement with U.S. authorities on Tuesday over a probe in connection with the laundering of money from drug traffickers in Mexico.
The U.S. government also alleges that HSBC intentionally allowed prohibited transactions with Iran, Libya, Sudan and Burma.
