Incidences of Financial Frauds in large loan accounts with huge financial loss implications have sharply risen in recent times. Digital & cyber frauds are also on the rise with increasing use of technology. Money laundering and fraudulent transactions in deposit accounts, loan accounts and trade transactions with characteristics of financial crime can attract PMLA and have regulatory & reputational risk implications. Banks and financial institutions need to, therefore, put in place an enterprise wide financial crime risk management framework for mitigation and prevention. What potentially strengthens this framework is quick and comprehensive investigation and audit. Particularly, in many cases, what is imperative is to identify the control failures and uncover the trails, gather evidence, trace the funds/assets, achieve financial resolution and prosecution. Forensic audit, which helps accomplish these multiple goals, is a highly complex, specialized and multidisciplinary function which is usually outsourced by financial intermediaries. Therefore, their internal senior staff ought to have a good understanding of the way forensic audit works.
