Ex-Rabobank CEO fined $20K for withholding AML report

Rabobank

The former chief executive officer of Rabobank, N.A. was fined $20,000 by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) last month for his alleged role in obstructing a Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) program examination.

John Ryan, CEO of Rabobank from September 2012 until December 2015, caused a material audit report to not be submitted to the OCC while it was carrying out an investigation at the bank in 2013, the agency alleged. In December 2013, Rabobank agreed to a consent order with the OCC regarding deficiencies in its BSA/anti-money laundering (AML) compliance program. The bank would be fined $50 million by the regulator in 2018 regarding the latter’s findings during that probe.

Ryan’s settlement with the OCC was reached July 28 and announced Thursday.
