ABA Announces Intent to Partner with K2 Integrity on Financial Crimes Resources

ABA member banks will have access to K2 Integrity’s suite of financial crimes training and continuing education

WASHINGTON —

The American Bankers Association today announced its intent to partner with K2 Integrity, one of the preeminent global risk, compliance, investigations, and monitoring firms. The announcement was made virtually at the 32nd annual ABA/ABA Financial Crimes Enforcement Conference.

Through this partnership, ABA member banks will gain access to K2 Integrity’s current suite of anti-money laundering, countering the financing of terrorism, sanctions, anti-bribery and corruption and fraud resources available on its e-learning platform – the Dedicated Online Financial Integrity Network (DOLFIN). ABA and K2 Integrity have agreed to collaborate on new courses and content throughout 2021 and beyond to help financial crimes compliance professionals develop the knowledge, technical skills and judgment to assess and respond to evolving financial crime risks.

“ABA is always working to expand and enhance the value of its offerings for member banks,” said Jim Edrington, ABA’s chief member engagement officer. “By partnering with K2 Integrity, we broaden ABA’s financial crimes offerings and ensure access to the best banker-training and resources on the market.”

K2 Integrity’s DOLFIN platform offers training, testing, certification and continuing education, as well as question and answer sessions with industry experts. The DOLFIN platform and its content were developed and are continuously maintained by financial crimes risk and compliance professionals, including experts who spearheaded the post-9/11 counter illicit finance regime adopted in the U.S and across the globe.

“At K2 Integrity, we believe protecting the integrity of the U.S. financial system from the full spectrum of illicit finance is a pillar of our national security and an enduring responsibility of U.S. financial institutions,” said Chip Poncy, partner and global co-head, financial crimes risk management at K2 Integrity. “By partnering with ABA, together, we will bring unparalleled financial crimes compliance and financial crimes risk management training, subject matter expertise, and resources to assist U.S. financial institutions in meeting the growing demands of this critical mission.”

Attendees taking part in the 2020 ABA/ABA Financial Crimes Enforcement Conference may register now, through February 1, 2021, for a free trial of DOLFIN. For more information on the ABA and K2 Integrity partnership, please visit aba.com.
