ACAMS Certifies Five Wolters Kluwer Financial Services Compliance Professionals as Anti-Money Laundering Specialists
Certification Demonstrates Company’s Commitment to Understanding the Domestic and International AML Challenges Financial Organizations Face
MINNEAPOLIS – March 15, 2006 – Wolters Kluwer Financial Services (WoltersKluwerFS.com) announced today that five of its top compliance professionals are now recognized as Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (CAMS) by the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS).
“CAMS certification serves as a prestigious and objective benchmark for the knowledge and skills required to succeed in the anti-money laundering profession,” said Mark Coronna, vice president of marketing for Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. “Earning a CAMS certification tells the financial organizations we work with that we are committed to fully understanding their domestic and international AML challenges. We provide effective solutions designed to help them stop money launderers in their tracks.”
Wolters Kluwer Financial Services employees Jim Barkley, Sarah Easley, T.J. La Porte, Melissa Johnson and Kevin Whalen have earned their CAMS certification. All played key roles in developing the comprehensive line of Wiz Sentri solutions that help organizations comply with Bank Secrecy Act and USA PATRIOT Act requirements.
“Helping financial organizations combat identity theft, money laundering and terrorism is a serious business,” said Coronna. “That’s why Wolters Kluwer Financial Services continues to invest in professional development in this area and is encouraging additional employees to earn their CAMS certification.”
To earn a CAMS certification, candidates must pass both a rigorous exam administered by ACAMS and a background check performed by the organization. To maintain CAMS certification, a person must conform to a program of earned credits through continuing professional education as well as maintain his or her membership in ACAMS to use and display the CAMS credential.
