Global Banks Reported to Move Allegedly Illicit Funds over the Past Two Decades Despite Warnings from U.S. Officials

Financial stocks came under pressure on Monday amid a report that global banks moved allegedly illicit funds over the past two decades despite warnings from U.S. officials. The sell-off was triggered by a new investigation by BuzzFeed and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that said the banks’ internal compliance officers flagged a total of more than$2 trillion in transactions between 1999 and 2017 as possible money laundering or other criminal activity. The report cited confidential documents submitted by banks to the U.S. government. (CNBC)
