SWISS SAY JP MORGAN BROKE MONEY LAUNDERING RULES

Switzerland’s financial markets authority FINMA has found that JP Morgan’s Swiss subsidiary broke anti-money laundering rules.

A ruling has found that JPMorgan Switzerland had "seriously infringed" regulations and that there had been a "violation of obligations of diligence on questions of money-laundering."

Both FINMA and JP Morgan declined to comment on the ruling. Neither has disclosed what action, if any, has been taken against the bank.

FINMA is not authorised to levy fines. But it can confiscate the proceeds of crime, impose restrictions on bankers and order an organisation to introduce workplace changes to prevent further problems.

With money laundering coming under more scrutiny than ever around the globe, the JP Morgan case is just another example of how everyone has to make the effort to make sure they are legally compliant. Otherwise, the outcome will prove costly.
