BORN TO WIN

A Message From Ron Powell, President & CEO

Lesson 1

Background

Recognizing the need for a more comprehensive anti-money laundering regime to fight drug trafficking, organized crime, and international terrorism, the U.S. Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed into law the USA PATRIOT ACT (Patriot Act), which, among other things, amended the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) to require all businesses defined in the BSA as financial institutions to implement an Anti-Money Laundering (AML) program and report suspicious transactions to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). An insurance company is defined as a "financial institution." The characteristics of financial products, including certain life insurance products, make them potentially vulnerable to those seeking to launder money. FinCEN relies upon a network of state, federal and international law enforcement agencies to collect, analyze and disseminate information about money laundering. FinCEN is also the repository for all Suspicious Activity Reports (SAR).

Bank Secrecy Act (1970)

The BSA grants the Treasury Department the authority to require firms under its jurisdiction to develop written policies and employee training programs for compliance with the provisions of the BSA. Additionally, the reporting and recordkeeping rules within the BSA require a financial institution to:

  • Maintain certain records in order to allow investigators to trace transactions.
    • Maintain certain records in order to allow investigators to trace transactions.
    • This includes information such as the identity and address of the participants in a transaction.
    • The legal capacity in which a participant in a transaction is acting.
    • The identity of the beneficial owner of the funds involved in any transaction.
    • A description of the transaction.
  • File a Currency Transaction Report (CTR) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for each transaction in currency of more than $10,000. The types of transactions include: deposits, withdrawals, or currency exchanges in an amount exceeding $10,000.
    • For purposes of the CTR, multiple transactions taking place on the same day, for the same person, and the at the same financial institution count as a single transaction; this is known as the Aggregation Rule.
  • File a Report of International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments (CMIR) when the amount of currency or monetary instruments transported into or outside of the U.S. exceed $10,000. Monetary instruments include any traveler’s checks or other checks, securities, or stocks that have been signed over or are otherwise in such a form that ownership goes to the bearer.
  • Maintain information concerning sales of monetary instruments purchased with cash in amounts from $3,000 to $10,000 to prevent structuring transactions.
  • Keep records for any transmittal of funds over $3,000 (the "Travel Rule").
  • Certain financial institutions must file a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) for any suspicious transaction or activity.

USA Patriot Act (2001)

On the heels of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the Patriot Act was signed into law to combat terrorism. The Patriot Act gives law enforcement agencies broader powers in dealing with money laundering and terrorism, and makes it more difficult for money launders to use their traditional financial channels to launder money. The Patriot Act created new anti-money laundering responsibilities for insurance companies.

Money Laundering

Money laundering is the illegal practice of placing money gained from criminal activity, "dirty money," through a series of apparently legitimate transactions in order to hide the criminal origin of the money. The goal is to make money from criminal activity appear to be from legitimate sources. Money is usually associated with cash though non-cash transactions can play a role. Any financial transaction can be a part of the process to hide the origin of the money

Mechanics

Although money laundering is a diverse and often complex process, it basically involves three independent steps that can occur simultaneously, separately or overlap.

  1. Placement. This is the first step in the washing cycle. Money laundering is a cash intensive business, generating vast amount of cash from illegal activities. The monies are placed into the financial system or retail economy or are smuggled out of the country. The aims of the launderer are to remove the cash from the location of acquisition so as to avoid detection from the authorities and to then transform it into other asset forms. A common method is “structuring” which breaks up the currency transactions into portions that fall below the reporting threshold. Examples for disposal of bulk cash include:
    • Payment of premiums on life insurance policies or annuity contracts;
    • Large number of transactions;
    • Using cash;
    • Using cash equivalents;
    • Not using normal banking channels.
  2. Layering. In the course of layering, there is the attempt at concealment or disguise of the source of ownership of the funds by creating complex layers of financial transactions designed to disguise the audit trail and provide anonymity. The purpose of layering is to disassociate the illegal monies from the source of the crime by purposely creating a complex web of financial transactions aimed at concealing any audit trail as well as the source and ownership of funds. Examples of layering include:
    • Multiple transactions
    • Purchasing financial products such as life insurance and annuities
    • Cash transfers
    • Currency exchanges
  3. Integration. Integration is the final step in the process. It is this stage at which money is integrated into the legitimate economic and financial system and is assimilated with all other assets in the system. Integration of the "cleaned" money into the economy is accomplished by the launderer making it appear to have been legally earned. By this stage, it is very difficult to distinguish legal and illegal wealth. Methods popular to money launderers at this stage are:
    • Purchasing legitimate businesses
    • Borrowing against insurance policies
    • Termination of insurance policies
    • Early termination of annuities

Ramifications

Penalties for money laundering can be severe. Fines could be twice the amount of the transaction up to 1 million dollars. Any property involved in the transaction or traceable to the proceeds of the criminal activity may be subject to forfeiture. Individuals are subject to prison terms for being willfully blind to the fact that the transaction involved illegal funds. In addition, insurance companies risk losing their charter, and agents risk being removed and barred from insurance. Insurance companies have their own disciplinary policies and procedures.

Agents not complying could be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination and will be reported to the proper legal authorities. To protect yourself from a willful blindness charge:

  • Report suspicious behavior to the Senior Life Market Compliance Department and keep documentation of communication;
  • Know your clients; and
  • Stay alert for any suspicious behaviors.

Reputational Risks

One of the most harmful outcomes from involvement in a money laundering investigation is damage to the agent and insurance company's reputation. Being aware of and following money laundering requirements helps protect our most valuable sales tool, your reputation.

DR. NATHANIEL HEARNE

Q1 INCENTIVE TRIP SPEAKER

Dr. Nathanial Hearne, epitomizes what “up by the bootstraps” stands for. An educator, motivator, mentor, executive, Pastor, trainer…and ultimately… the man who has led countless individuals to excel far past their expectations and even their dreams. He was instrumental in combining education with athletics much to the chagrin of some coaches while earning him the love and respect of those he molded into men.

Dr. Hearne played an important part in the lives of those football players and coaches who the film, “Friday Night Lights” was all about. As Assistant Coach he instilled a love of honor and sportsmanship in every team member as he led them in strength and stamina conditioning. The Permian High School team became National Football Champions in 1989 and State Champs in 1991.

As Assistant Principal and then Principal in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD of Texas, he turned around the Discipline Alternative Education Program for difficult students managing it for five years… and motivating hundreds of potential drop-outs to remain in school and graduate.

His Dropout Prevention Program was recognized by the “Texas School Business” magazine as the best prevention program in Texas in 2010. Dr. Hearne practiced what he preached, that by applying yourself and making the most of what God had blessed you with you could do anything and become anything you wanted.

One of eight children raised by strong parents, he excelled in school. But, like those he came to mentor, he didn’t like school and wanted to drop out. He says you didn’t argue with a mom who held two jobs to clothe and feed you… you did what she told you to do. His first degree was a B.S. in Physical Education at North Texas State University in 1974. He returned to the University of Texas in 1979, obtaining a Master of Arts. In 1998 he garnered a Master of Divinity at SMU while working full time at the Clarksville ISD as the Football Defensive Coordinator and Condition Coach. The next year he became an Ordained Minister and served as such in several churches. In 2009 he was back at SMU obtaining a Doctor of Ministry.

Dr. Hearne’s ultimate, all time, challenge and success has been his dynamic presentations on “Leaving a Legacy” that will have you cheering one minute and crying the next. Click here to watch.

He is happily married to Callie & resides in Arlington, Texas. They have five grown children and three grandchildren.
