How We Help
Anti-Money Laundering and Sanctions Compliance
StoneTurn’s experts in Know Your Customer, ongoing and enhanced due diligence, transaction monitoring, and customer risk ratings help FIs design, implement and test anti-money laundering controls. Our professionals also help organizations understand and comply with sanctions, embargoes, tariffs, and other trade controls in countries around the world.
Internal Investigations, Government Inquiries and Regulatory Exams
Our financial services and financial regulator alumni help small, medium, and large institutions build and maintain effective regulatory compliance programs in banking and securities. We assist in-house teams in preparing for and navigating government inquiries and regulatory exams. When a government inquiry suggests an underlying issue, we help firms and their counsel conduct thorough investigations, enabling proactive cooperation with regulatory and prosecutorial agencies.
StoneTurn’s professionals help companies around the world manage anti-corruption risk by designing and implementing relevant controls, policies and training and by performing holistic third-party due diligence. Our experienced forensic accountants conduct robust investigations of bribery allegations and other corrupt practices. Post-investigation, we assist clients with root cause analyses and controls assessments and help modify supporting policies, guidance, and detective controls.
Remediate and Monitor
Our experts work with organizations to remediate compliance programs after misconduct is discovered so wrongdoing does not recur. We serve as court- and government-appointed monitors to oversee and assess the design and implementation of effective policies and controls. When anticipating regulatory or prosecutorial action, financial institutions engage StoneTurn proactively as remediation consultant to demonstrate the firm is “a step ahead” in fixing what went wrong.
StoneTurn’s experts evaluate, format and structure large amounts of information from multiple structured and unstructured data sources to help our clients understand relationships, trends and outliers. We also analyze the results of detective controls to timely assess and identify exceptions and trends.
The StoneTurn team assesses pricing methodologies for reasonableness and consistency, analyzes pricing for variabilities, outliers, and other indicators of risk, as well as reviews operational processes, internal controls, and training for pricing procedures. If allegations of securities fraud, market manipulation, breach of fiduciary duty and/or insider trading arise, our experienced economists analyze complex claims under SEC Rule 10b-5 or ERISA, evaluate class action damage claims, or provide portfolio valuations.
