  • BACKGROUND
  • [0002]
    This invention relates generally to a method and system for facilitating the identification, investigation, assessment and management of legal, regulatory, financial and reputational risks (“Risks”). In particular, the present invention relates to a computerized system and method for banks and non-bank financial institution to comply with “know your customer” requirements associated with a correspondent bank.
  • [0003]
    As money-laundering and related concerns have become increasingly important public policy concerns, regulators have attempted to address these issues by imposing increasing formal and informal obligations upon financial institutions. Government regulations authorize a broad regime of record-keeping and regulatory reporting obligations on covered financial institutions as a tool for the federal government to use to fight drug trafficking, money laundering, and other crimes. The regulations may require financial institutions to file currency and monetary instrument reports and to maintain certain records for possible use in tax, criminal and regulatory proceedings. Such a body of regulation is designed chiefly to assist law enforcement authorities in detecting when criminals arc using banks and other financial institution as an intermediary for, or to hide the transfer of funds derived from criminal activity.
  • [0004]
    Amongst other obligations, sections 313 and 319(b) of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT) Act of 2001 prohibit certain financial institutions from providing correspondent accounts to a foreign Shell Bank and requires financial institutions to take reasonable steps to ensure that a correspondent account provided to a foreign bank is not being used to indirectly provide banking services to foreign Shell Banks. In addition, section 319(b) of the USA PATRIOT Act adds a new subsection (k) to 31 U.S.C. 5318 which requires certain financial institutions that provide correspondent accounts to a foreign bank to maintain records of the foreign bank's owners and agent in the United States designated to accept service of legal process.
  • [0005]
    The USA PATRIOT Act, provides that a covered financial institution shall not establish, maintain, administer, or manage a correspondent account in the United States for, or on behalf of, a foreign bank that does not have a physical presence in any country (Shell Bank). In addition, the USA PATRIOT Act requires a covered financial institution to take reasonable steps to ensure that any correspondent account established, maintained, administered, or managed by the covered financial institution in the United States for a foreign bank is not being used by that foreign bank to indirectly provide banking services to a foreign Shell Bank that is not a regulated affiliate. Current regulations can require that a certification be established and maintained on a two year cycle.
  • [0006]
    Bank and non-bank financial institutions, including: an investment bank; a merchant bank; a securities firm, any insured bank (as defined in section 3(h) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1813(h)); a commercial bank or trust company; a private banker; a credit union; a thrill institution; broker dealers securities and commodities trading firms; asset management companies, hedge funds, mutual funds, credit rating funds, securities exchanges and bourses, institutional and individual investors, law firms, accounting firms, auditing firms, or any institution the business of which is engaging in financial activities as described in section 4(k) of the Bank Holding Act of 1956; may be subject to legal and regulatory obligations associated with the USA PATRIOT Act, hereinafter collectively referred to as “Financial Institution.” Financial Institutions typically have few resources available to them to assist in establishing and maintaining necessary records.
  • [0007]
    Establishing and maintaining certifications required under the USA PATRIOT ACT can be onerous to both a Financial Institution and to a foreign counterpart seeking to provide required information. Uncertainty can surround what the certification requirements are and how to properly fulfill them. Directions given by the U.S. Treasury Department estimate that a qualified person may take approximately twenty hours to properly generate a certification. This amount of work may need to be duplicated for each request from each respondent bank. In addition, there exists an increased likelihood of confusion, redundancy, inaccuracy and contradiction if different entities acting on behalf of a single correspondent bank provide certification to multiple respondent institutions.
  • [0008]
    What is needed is a method and system to coordinate and administer the certification process. Compiled certification information should be situated in a known resource from which it can be conveyed to a compliance department or government entity and also be able to demonstrate to regulators that a Financial Institution has met standards relating to risk containment.
  • SUMMARY
  • [0009]
    Accordingly, the present invention provides methods and systems for managing Risk related to a certification process through the utilization of a risk management clearinghouse (RMC). The present invention provides for a certification, such as the certification of a foreign correspondent bank addressing the USA PATRIOT Act, to be accomplished by receiving risk management certification information from a foreign bank and storing the information in a computer server.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • [0026]
    The present invention includes a method and system for facilitating the transfer of information relating to risk management, such as, for example, information directed towards compliance with the USA PATRIOT Act and certification of a foreign correspondent bank. Generally, a foreign bank or other entity can provide a RMC with information relating to compliance with government requirements, or other information, and allow the RMC to convey to information in whole or in part to interested parties. Centralized distribution of certification related information can facilitate consistent and accurate compliance with government related requirements.
  • [0027]
    Referring now to FIG. 1 a block diagram of one embodiment of the present invention is illustrated. In addition to other services that an RMC system 106 may provide, such as those described in related documents, an RMC system 106 can facilitate an exchange of information required to manage risk associated with a foreign bank 101-103 and regulated affiliate 104. In some embodiments, an RMC system 106 can act as a registry of information required for certification of a foreign correspondent bank according to risk management procedures, such as, for example, procedures required to meet obligations set forth by the USA PATRIOT Act. The RMC system 106 can receive and maintain certifications 105 responsive to the risk management procedures and make the certifications 105 available to one or more Financial Institutions 107, government entities, or other Subscriber 108 or interested party. In particular, the certifications 105 can he useful to manage risk by fulfilling obligations set forth in the USA PATRIOT Act for a Financial Institution 107 acting as a respondent bank to a foreign correspondent bank.
  • [0028]
    For the purposes of this application, a “Shell Bank” can include a foreign hank 101-103 without a physical presence in any country. A physical presence can be a place of business that is maintained by a foreign bank 101-103 and is located at a fixed address, other than solely an electronic address, in a country in which the foreign bank 101-103 is authorized to conduct banking activities.
  • [0029]
    A “Correspondent Account”, with respect to a Financial Institution 107, can be an account established to receive deposits from, make payments on behalf of a foreign Financial Institution 107, or handle other financial transactions related to such institution.
  • [0030]
    A “Certification” 105 may be a compilation of information utilized by a Financial Institution 107 to assist the institution to manage risk related to dealing with a foreign Shell Bank. Certification 105 can include, among other things, documentation indicating that any Financial Institution 107 that maintains one or more correspondent accounts in the United States for a foreign bank 101-103 maintain records in the United States identifying the owner(s) of such foreign bank 101-103 and the name and address of a person who resides in the United States and is authorized to accept service of legal process for records regarding the correspondent account.
  • [0031]
    A Certification 105 established with the RMC system 106 can state that a foreign hank 101-103 that maintains a correspondent account with a covered Financial Institution 107 certifies either that it is not a Shell Bank; that it is a Shell Bank that it is a regulated affiliate of a non-Shell Bank; or that it is a Shell Bank that is not a regulated affiliate. In the case that a Shell Bank is not a regulated affiliate, prevailing law may prohibit a covered Financial Institution 107 from establishing or maintaining a correspondent account with that foreign bank 101-102.
  • [0032]
    Independent of a bank's or other Financial Institution's procurement of information, for certification or otherwise, a RMC 106 can gather and collect information relating to a Financial
  • [0033]
    Institution. Information can be collected, for example, from public sources, such as government lists. Non-public information gathered by a subscriber 107-108 can also be collected and stored in a manner that will not violate prevailing law, such as, for example, in a Proprietary Risk Management Server 211. In some cases, the information may support or contradict information provided by a certification, such as whether a bank 101-102 is a Shell Bank.
  • [0034]
    Amendments to the anti-money laundering provisions of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), which are included in the USA PATRIOT Act may require that a Financial Institution 107 manage risk relating to correspondent accounts by ascertaining certain minimum information relating to the Financial Institution's 107 customers. In particular, a Financial Institution 107 may manage risk relating to correspondent accounts by certifying that it is not providing correspondent accounts to foreign Shell Banks and taking reasonable steps to ensure that a correspondent account provided to a foreign bank 101-103 is not being used to indirectly provide banking services to a foreign Shell Bank. Risk management procedures for a Financial Institution 107 that provides a correspondent account to a foreign bank 101-103 can include maintaining records relating to the foreign bank's 101-103 owners as well as records of an agent in the United States designated to accept service of legal process.
  • [0035]
    Risk management procedures implemented by a Financial Institution 107 may dictate, for example, that the Financial Institution 107 should not establish, maintain, administer, or manage a correspondent account in the United States for, or on behalf of Shell Bank. In addition, the risk management procedures may include taking reasonable steps to ensure that any correspondent account established, maintained, administered, or managed by a covered Financial Institution 107 in the United States for a foreign bank 101-103 is not being used by that foreign hank 101-103 to indirectly provide banking services to a foreign Shell Bank that is not a regulated affiliate.
  • [0036]
    A foreign bank 101-103 can certify, such as, for example, to the RMC 106, that it is not a Shell Bank. Risk management procedures can require that the RMC receive certification specifying a physical address for the foreign bank 101-103 and a regulator for the foreign bank 101-103. If a foreign bank 101-103 certifies that it is a regulated affiliate, the foreign bank 101-103 can be required to specify a name and address of a non-Shell Bank with which the foreign bank 101-103 is affiliated and a regulator for the non-Shell Bank and the regulated affiliate. Certification information received by the RMC 106 can be stored and organized for expeditious delivery to an interested party authorized by parties involved to receive the information.
  • [0037]
    A foreign hank 101-103 can also certify either that it does not provide banking services to any foreign Shell Bank, other than a regulated affiliate; or that it provides banking services to a foreign Shell Bank but will not use any of the correspondent accounts with a U.S. Financial Institution 107 to provide banking services to any foreign Shell Bank, other than a regulated affiliate.
  • [0038]
    In another aspect, a foreign bank 101-103 can certify the identity of its owner(s) and include street addresses, as well as the identity and address of its agent for service of legal process in the United States.
  • [0039]
    A foreign bank 101-103 can also certify that it will notify each Financial Institution 107 in the United States at which it maintains a correspondent account in writing within 30 calendar days of any change in facts or circumstances previously certified or contained in the annexes to the Certification 105.
  • [0040]
    In some embodiments, the RMC system 106 can be utilized to effect notice, of any change in facts or circumstances previously certified or contained in the annexes to the Certification 105. For those Financial Institutions 107 on record with RMC system 106 notice can be accomplished via delivery of an electronic document, printing remotely, facsimile, or hardcopy generated and physically delivered. A RMC system 106 can also be utilized to notify appropriate parties of administrative obligations such as, for example, notice of a change in facts contained in a Certification 105.
  • [0041]
    Embodiments can also include providing a copy of any certifications 105 to the Secretary of the Treasury and the Attorney General of the United States, or their delegates.
  • [0042]
    Risk management procedures can establish that reporting information required for Certification 105 is voluntary for a foreign banking institution 101-103; however, failure to provide information necessary to complete Certification 105 may preclude the establishment or continuation of correspondent accounts with the U.S. Financial Institution 107.
  • [0043]
    A subscriber 107-108 can include a Respondent Financial Institution 107 or other subscribing entity 108, including, for example: a regulator, a money transfer agency, bourse, an institutional or individual investor, an auditing firm, a law firm, any institution the business of which is engaging in financial activities or other entity or institution who may be involved with a financial transaction or other business transaction or any entity subject to legal and regulatory compliance obligations with respect to money laundering, fraud, corruption, terrorism, organized crime, regulatory and suspicious activity reporting, sanctions, embargoes and other regulatory risks and associated obligations.
  • [0044]
    Financial investments can include investment and merchant banking, public and private financing, commodities and a securities trading, commercial and consumer lending, asset management, rating of corporations and securities, public and private equity investment, public and private fixed income investment, listing to companies on a securities exchange and bourse, employee screening, auditing of corporate or other entities, legal opinions relating to a corporate or other entity, or other business related transactions.
  • [0045]
    FIG. 1A illustrates a scenario wherein a respondent Financial Institution 107 or other subscriber 108 can receive a Certification 105 from one or more foreign banks or affiliates 101-104 via an RMC 106. Certifications 105 registered with the RMC system 106 can be readily accessible to the respondent Financial Institution 107 or other subscriber 108 thereby facilitating collection of certifications 105, wherein the respondent Financial Institution 107 is relieved of having to ascertain a correct person to contact within each foreign bank 101-104 from which it requires Certification 105 and coordinate receipt of each Certification 105. As illustrated, the present invention can make it possible for the respondent Financial Institution 107 to only have to complete a single access to the RMC system 106 in order to receive multiple certifications 105, each from a separate foreign hank 101-102 or from a non-shell Foreign Bank 103 and/or a regulated affiliate 104. The Certification 105 can contain, information to assist a U.S. Financial Institution 107 comply with prevailing law regarding correspondent accounts and other regulations.
  • [0046]
    Embodiments can include information that is received from a foreign bank 101-104 in any form that can accurately convey information necessary to complete the Certification 105. For example, information can he input into a graphical user interface (GUI), submitted via hard copy, facsimile, scanned image, or any other form of information conveyance. The RMC system 106 can store the Certification 105 and convey it upon request.
  • [0047]
    Similarly, Certification 105 information can be retrieved by a respondent Financial Institution 107 or other subscriber 108 using any available mechanism for conveying information, including, but not limited to: scanned image, database record retrieval, text file, facsimile, hard copy, data stored on a computer readable medium, or other mechanism.
  • [0048]
    FIG. 1B is related to FIG. 1A and more clearly illustrates a scenario wherein a correspondent Foreign Bank 101 seeking to open a correspondent account can convey a Certification 105 to one or more respondent Financial Institutions 107 and 109 or other subscriber 108. In some embodiments, the correspondent Foreign Bank 101 can transmit information relating to the certification 105 to the RMC system 106. The RMC system 106 can store the information and generate a certification 105 and convey it to a respondent Financial Institution 107 and 109 or other subscriber 108 upon request of the correspondent Foreign Bank 101 or the Financial Institution 107 and 109 or other subscriber 108. Embodiments can also include transmission of a completed certification 105 to the RMC system 106, such as an image documents comprising the certification 105. The completed certification 105 can then be transmitted by the RMC system 106 to a Financial Institution 107 and 109 or other subscriber 108.
  • [0049]
    Referring now to FIG. 2, a network diagram illustrating one embodiment of the present invention is shown 200. An automated RMC system 106 can include a computerized RMC server 210 accessible via a distributed network 201 such as the Internet, or a private network. A user 206-209, can use a computerized system or network access device 202-205 to receive, input, transmit or view information processed in the RMC server 210. A protocol, such as, for example, the transmission control protocol internet protocol (TCP/IP) can be utilized to provide consistency and reliability.
  • [0050]
    In addition, a proprietary risk management (PRM) server 211 can access the RMC server 210 via the network 201 or via a direct link 213, such as a T1 line, digital subscriber line (DSL), or other high speed pipe. The PRM server 211 can in turn be accessed by an affiliated user via a system access device 202-205 and a communications network 201, such as a local area network, or other private network, or even the Internet, if desired. For the purposes of this application, any function or reference to an RMC server 210 can also include a PRM server 211, except that the PRM server 211 may be more appropriate to store and access proprietary information that will not be shared outside of an organization except as allowed by prevailing applicable law. In addition, in some embodiments, a PRM server 211 may he utilized to calculate risk quotients or other subjective valuations which an RMC server 210 may be limited from doing by an RMC 106 provider.
  • [0051]
    A system access device 202-205 used to access the RMC server 210 can include a processor, memory and a user input device, such as a keyboard and/or mouse, and a user output device, such as a display screen and/or printer. The system access devices 202-205 can communicate with the RMC server 210 to access data and programs stored at the respective RMC server 210. A system access device 202-205 may interact with the RMC server 210 as if the RMC server 210 were a single entity in the network 200. However, the RMC server 210 may include multiple processing and database sub-systems, such as cooperative or redundant processing and/or database servers that can be geographically dispersed throughout the network 200.
  • [0052]
    The RMC server 210 can include one or more databases 212 storing data relating to risk management, and in particular to certification of a foreign bank 101-103 or affiliate 104, including, for example, docketing information and programming capable of tracking relative dates and entities involved. Information relating to and included in gathered certifications can be aggregated into a searchable data storage structure. Gathering data into an aggregate data structure 212, such as a data warehouse, allows a RMC system 106 to have the data readily available for processing a risk management search associated with a Correspondent Bank 101-104 certification. Aggregated data 212 can also be scrubbed or otherwise enhanced to aid in searching.
  • [0053]
    In one embodiment of enhancing data, data scrubbing can be utilized to implement a data warehouse comprising the aggregate data structure 212. Data scrubbing can be utilized to store information in a manner that gives efficient access to pertinent data. Scrubbing can facilitate expedient access to data commensurate with business decisions that will be based upon Risk management assessment provided.
  • [0054]
    Various data scrubbing routines can be utilized to facilitate aggregation of Risk variable related information. The routines can include programs capable of correcting a specific type of mistake, such as an incomprehensible address, or clean up a full spectrum of commonly found database flaws, such as field alignment or misplaced data and move it to a correct field, or removing inconsistencies and inaccuracies from like data. Other scrubbing routines can be directed directly towards specific legal issues, such as money laundering or terrorist tracking activities.
  • [0055]
    For example, a scrubbing routine can be used to facilitate various different spelling of one name. In particular, spelling of names can be important when names have been translated from a foreign language into English. A data scrubbing routine can facilitate risk variable searching for multiple spellings of an equivalent name or other important information. Such a routine can help correct database flaws. Accordingly, scrubbing routines can improve and expand data quality more efficiently than manual mending and also allow a subscriber 107-109 to quantify best practices for regulatory purposes.

    Typically a user 206-209 will access the RMC server 210 using client software executed at a system access device 202-205. The client software may include a generic hypertext markup language (HTML) browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, (a “WEB browser”). The client software may also be a proprietary browser, and/or other host access software. In some cases, an executable program, such as a Java™ program, may be downloaded from the RMC server 210 to the system access device 202-205 and executed at the system access device 202-205 as part of RMC risk management software. Other implementations include proprietary software installed from a computer readable medium, such as a CD ROM. The invention may therefore be implemented in digital electronic circuitry, computer hardware, firmware, software, or in combinations of the above. Apparatus of the invention may be implemented in a computer program product tangibly embodied in a machine-readable storage device for execution by a programmable processor; and method steps of the invention may be performed by a programmable processor executing a program of instructions to perform functions of the invention by operating on input data and generating output.
  • [0057]
    Referring now to FIG. 3, steps that can be performed while practicing the present invention are illustrated. From the perspective of an RMC system 106 or RMC provider, at 310 a request to register a risk management certification with the RMC system 106 can be received, such as, for example, via an electronic communication, facsimile, hardcopy, or voice call. At 311, the RMC system 106 can convey the certification materials to the entity that wishes to register or the entity's agent. The materials can be conveyed, for example, via electronic file transfer, e-mail, facsimile, hardcopy, voice communication or other communications vehicle. An exemplary certification that may currently be useful to address obligations incurred under the USA PATRIOT Act is attached hereto as Appendix A.
  • [0058]
    At 312, an RMC system 106 may receive a request for guidance in providing the certification materials. Guidance may be necessary, for example, to interpret obligations relating to what needs to be certified in order to comply with various regulatory requirements, such as those set forth in the USA PATRIOT Act and the relative complexity of some information that may need interpretation.
  • [0059]
    For example, in complying with the USA PATRIOT Act the task of ascertaining who constitutes an “owner” that should be reported can be subject to a fair amount of work and interpretation. An owner can mean any person who is a large direct owner, an indirect owner, and certain small direct owners. A person can mean any individual, bank, corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or any other legal entity, except that members of the same family shall be considered one person; and voting shares or other voting interests means shares or other interests that entitle the holder to vote for or select directors (or individuals exercising similar functions).
  • [0060]
    The USA PATRIOT Act indicates that a small direct owner may or may not need to be reported depending on whether two or more small direct owners in the aggregate own 25 percent or more of the voting securities or interests of the foreign bank and are owned by the same indirect owner. A large direct owner of a foreign bank can be a person who owns, controls, or has power to vote 25 percent or more of any class of voting securities or other voting interests of the foreign bank; or controls in any manner the election of a majority of the directors (or individuals exercising similar functions) of the foreign bank. The identity of each large direct owner is subject to reporting. If any large direct owner of a foreign bank 101-103 is majority-owned by another person, or by a chain of majority-owned persons, an indirect owner is any person in the ownership chain of any large direct owner who is not majority-owned by another person. If any two or more small direct owners of a foreign bank in the aggregate own, control, or have power to vote twenty five percent or more of any class of voting securities or other voting interests of the foreign bank and are majority-owned by the same person, or by the same chain of majority-owned persons, the indirect owner can be any person in the ownership chain of the small direct owners who is not majority-owned by another person. Each indirect owner may be subject to reporting.
  • [0061]
    Guidance relating to interpretation and compliance may be needed as each foreign institution attempts to properly and consistently provide certification to each U.S. Financial Institution with which the foreign institution has a correspondent banking relationship. Guidance and centralization offered by an RMC 106 can facilitate a cohesive certification and minimize confusion, redundancy, inaccuracy and contradictions that may result from multiple parties each interpreting and translating such guidelines on their own. In addition, the amount of resources and administration overhead associated with maintaining such records can be lessened by a centralized approach.
  • [0062]
    At 313, guidance may be provided by the RMC system 106 via online documentation, artificial intelligence programs, online question and answer materials, live administrative assistance, referral to a third party or other manner of responding to the request for guidance. Some embodiments can include guidance that ascertains the completeness of certification information conveyed by a foreign bank 101-104, such as, for example guidance as to whether entries have been set forth for all required inputs and a document has been properly executed where required. Electronic signatures may be sufficient in some embodiments to complete execution.
  • [0063]
    Embodiments can also include a verification step which can independently research the veracity of information put forth in a certification. Other embodiments can convey any information put forth with no value judgment, research or other indication relating to the veracity or completeness of any information conveyed in a certification.
  • [0064]
    At 314, the RMC system 106 can also receive a risk management certification and at 315 the certification can be stored in a retrievable data storage device. In addition, at 316 the information descriptive of or relating to the certification, as well as information descriptive of the entities involved, can be docketed. The docket can be utilized to track critical dates, entities involved, contact information and the like. In some embodiments, docketing can include parsing information contained in a Certification 105 and storing the parsed information in a database in order to facilitate analysis and docketing of the information. For example, data can be configured to track dates relating to the certification, dates relating to actions taken, contact information, requests, authorizations and other pertinent information. Other embodiments can include docketing information descriptive of a Certification 105.
  • [0065]
    At 317, the RMC system 106 can notify interested parties of administrative obligations, such as the obligation to re-certify every two years for compliance with the USA PATRIOT Act. At 318, the RMC system 106 can receive updated information, such as information related to or otherwise comprising a certificate renewal and at 319 the updated certification information can be transmitted to interested parties.
  • [0066]
    Referring now to FIG. 4, additional steps that can be performed while implementing some embodiments of the present invention are illustrated. At 410, a RMC system 106 can login an RMC subscriber and at 411 the RMC system 106 can receive a request for a particular certification. The login can be accomplished in any manner that serves to identify the subscriber and allow for communication between the RMC system 106 and the subscriber, such as via login at a website or other electronic interface. At 412, responsive to a request for a certification, the RMC system 106 can request authorization to convey the certification from a party designated to grant such authorization, such as a compliance officer for the foreign bank 101-104 for which the certification is requested.
  • [0067]
    At 413 and 414 the RMC system 106 may receive a response to the request for authorization to convey the certification. At 413 a denial of required authorization can be received. Accordingly, at 415 the RMC system 106 can transmit a denial for the request of certification authorization. Alternatively, at 414, the RMC system 106 may receive an approval for the request for authorization and at 416 transmit the certification to the requestor.
  • [0068]
    At 417, a request for a certification can be archived, along with a related response. At 418, the RMC system 106 can also be utilized to generate one or more reports relating to a request for certification and associated action resultant to the request.
  • [0069]
    Referring now to FIG. 5, steps relating to updating risk management information according to some embodiments of the present invention arc illustrated. Risk management information which can be updated can include certification information utilized to comply with the USA PATRIOT Act. At 510, a RMC system 106 can receive updated information, such as a change in contact information, change in ownership, change in agent to receive service of a subpoena or other change. At 511, the received updates can be docketed to facilitate in processing and at 512, a list of recipients who are to receive the updates can be compiled. Recipients can include, for example, financial institutions or other subscribers 107-109 that have received a previous certification. At 513, updates can be transmitted or otherwise conveyed to the members included on the list of recipients.
  • [0070]
    Referring now to FIG. 6, some embodiments of the present invention can include an RMC system 106 which does not actually receive risk management certification information, such as a certification to comply with the USA PATRIOT Act, but instead, at 610 receives a description of a certification 105 and a designated network address at which the certification can be accessed. A designated network address can include, for example, a TCP/IP address, a uniform resource locator, or any other identifying mechanism that can direct access to a particular network resource. At 611, the RMC system 106 can receive a request to convey a particular certification and at 612 the RMC system 106 can request authorization to convey the designated network address containing the particular certification. At 613 and 614 a denial or authorization of the request to convey the designated network address can be received. At 613 a denial of authorization is received and accordingly, at 615 the RMC can transmit a denial of the request for the certification. At 614 an approval granting authorization is received, and accordingly, at 616 the RMC system 106 can transmit or otherwise convey the designated network address at which the certification information can be accessed.
  • [0071]
    Relatedly, as illustrated in FIG. 7, in some embodiments, at 710, a subscriber, such as a respondent Financial Institution or other entity 107-109, can request certification information from the RMC system 106 and at 711 receive a designated network address of a resource that contains a related certification 105 which is available via the network 201. At 712, a respondent Financial Institution or other entity 107-109 can access a network resource located at the address conveyed by the RMC system 106 and at 713 receive the certification information.
  • [0072]
    Referring now to FIG. 8, an exemplary GUI 800 that can be utilized while practicing the present invention is illustrated. A portion of a display 801 can display information that relates to a respondent Financial institution, such as a U.S. Bank. Another portion of the display 802 can include information descriptive of a correspondent Foreign Bank 101-103 and any regulated subsidiaries 104. Still another portion 803 can contain certification information. A portion 804 can also display instructions relating to how to obtain a certification 105.
  • [0073]
    Referring now to FIG. 9, a portion of a design of a database that can be utilized while implementing the present invention is illustrated. The database 900 can include a field containing data descriptive of a respondent Financial Institution 901 as well as a field containing data descriptive of a correspondent institution 902. Another field can hold data descriptive of a related certification 903.
  • [0074]
    A number of embodiments of the present invention have been described. Nevertheless, it will be understood that various modifications may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. For example, certified hard copy documents can be gathered and scanned into the RMC system 106 such that the scanned image can be forwarded to a subscriber as appropriate. In addition, certification data stored with the RMC 106 can indicate an agent for legal service which can be utilized in conjunction with an electronic subpoena service to serve a subpoena. Still other embodiments include certification data and/or documents that will expire and be locked, such as with encryption after a set period of time has elapsed, such as, for example a period for which the data will remain current. Accordingly, other embodiments are within the scope of the following claims.
