    Goals / Remit

    The Wolfsberg Group is an association of 12 global banks which aims to develop frameworks and guidance for the management of financial crime risks, particularly with respect to Know Your Customer, Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing policies.

    The Group has been publishing standards, FAQs, and guidance on a range of financial crime compliance topics for over 20 years. These publications are used by the financial services industry worldwide and have been supported by the public sector and cited favourably by regulators. Topics covered have included standards on private banking, the risk-based approach, payment transparency, politically exposed persons, source of wealth/source of funds, anti-bribery and corruption, sanctions screening, risk management for customers who transact digitally, and the handling of negative media. The Group is also the publisher of the industry standard Correspondent Banking Due Diligence Questionnaire.
