AuditLink, the audit and compliance division of the West Michigan-based CUSO CU*Answers, announced that Jim Vilker, head of the division, has passed the Certified Anti-Money Laundering (CAMS) exam.
“Passing CAMS has been a professional goal of mine for many years,” said Vilker. “After attending the ACAMS international seminar in Las Vegas last year it became clear that CU*Answers not only needed to become a member, but also have a certified specialist.”
“We strive to be an end-to-end provider of AML tools including features that reside within the core CU*BASE® system. The sheer knowledge gained through achieving this accreditation will without a doubt keep CU*Answers on the cutting edge of current industry trends. Not only will this lead to state of the art system features but will also lead to the dissemination of best practices for the cooperative as a whole for anti-money laundering and terrorist financing,” Vilker went on to say.
AuditLink also does BSA annual reviews and assists credit unions in completing the daily work relative to suspicious activity monitoring. “This designation will further enhance our service offerings and guarantee that our team will deliver the highest quality product in the industry,” concluded Vilker.
