NYDFS and UK FCA Fines Deutsche Bank a Combined $629m for AML Violations

Jan 30, 2017

Deutsche Bank AG and its New York branch have been ordered to pay a $629 million fine and hire an independent monitor as part of a consent order entered into with the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for violations of anti-money laundering laws involving a “mirror trading” scheme among the bank’s Moscow, London and New York offices that laundered $10 billion out of Russia.

The NYDFS investigation – which was undertaken while working closely with the FCA - found that the bank failed to act on numerous occasions to detect, investigate and stop the scheme due to extensive compliance failures, allowing the scheme to continue for years.
