Supervision Department - AML/CFT Training 
Definitions GlosSTRy
Literally, away from one‘s own home country—if one lives in Europe, the U.S. is ―offshore.‖ In the money 
laundering lexicon, the term refers to jurisdictions deemed favorable to foreign investments because of low 
or no taxation or strict bank secrecy regulations. 
Offshore Bank 
Though licensed to conduct banking activities, an offshore bank is prohibited from doing business with 
local citizens or in local currency as a condition of its license. 
Offshore Financial Center (OFC) 
Institutions that cater to or otherwise encourage banks, trading companies, and other corporate or legal 
entities to physically or legally exist in a jurisdiction but limit their operations to ―offshore,‖ meaning 
outside the jurisdiction (see Offshore). OFCs have historically been located in the Caribbean or on 
Mediterranean islands to be in reasonable proximity to the major financial centers of the U.S. and Europe. 
Offshore Group of Banking Supervisors (OGBS) 
Organization that promotes the supervision of banks in their jurisdictions and furthers international 
cooperation among Offshore Banking Supervisors, Basel Committee member nations, and other banking 
supervisors. The OGBS was established in 1980 at the instigation of the Basel Committee on Banking 
Supervision, with which it maintains close contact. Through the Working Group on Cross-Border Banking, 
the Offshore Group joined with the Basel Committee in preparing a paper on Customer Due Diligence for 
Banks, which the Basel Committee issued in 2001. This paper reinforces principles 
set out in earlier Basel Committee papers by providing more precise guidance on the essential elements of 
Know Your Customer standards and their implementation. Offshore Group members are fully committed to 
the KYC standards contained in the paper. The Working Group also has produced as an annex to the 
Customer Due Diligence paper a General Guide to Account Opening and Customer Identification.   
Omnibus Account 
See Clearing Account. 
Operational Risk 
The risk of direct or indirect loss of operations due to inadequate or failed internal processes, people or 
systems, or as a result of external events. Public perception that a bank is not able to manage its operational 
risk effectively can disrupt or harm the business of the bank.

Abuse Control Commission (CICAD). They include amendments to the OAS Model Regulations issued in

organized stock exchange, or for trading securities such as corporate bonds, mortgage- backed or

the buyer and seller rather than by ―auction bidding‖ on the floor of an exchange.
