Institutional - Government Securities Act (GSA) RegulationsWe do not expect that securities and futures firms will need to apply each of the five risk factors to every correspondent account relationship they establish, maintain, administer, or manage for a foreign financial institution. Rather, securities and futures firms may apply some subset of the five enumerated factors when conducting due diligence on a foreign financial institution, depending upon their determination of the nature of the foreign financial institution they are assessing and the relative money laundering risk posed by such institution. The due diligence programs of securities and futures firms should provide, as appropriate, for the consideration of additional factors that have not been enumerated in the rule when assessing foreign financial institutions with a unique risk profile or those that pose high risk. Intermediated Relationships under the Correspondent Account Rule We also have been asked to address how securities and futures firms should treat certain intermediaries and intermediated relationships for the purpose of complying with the due diligence provisions of the correspondent account rule. Under the correspondent account rule, a securities or futures firm is required to perform due diligence on a foreign financial institution for which an omnibus account is established or maintained.
