The Norwegian financial watchdog identified several shortfalls in the anti-money laundering assessments of lenders in the country, Reuters reported March 22.
The Finanstilsynet did not state what the shortfalls were, but said that concerned banks have already been checked.
In November 2018, the regulator criticized the country's largest bank, DNB ASA, saying it had insufficient anti-money laundering controls. This comes as lenders in the Nordic region come under fire for their alleged involvement in illicit transactions. The Estonia branch of Denmark's Danske Bank A/S is suspected of having processed up to €200 billion in dirty money.
