OSLO, March 22 (Reuters) - Several banks operating in Norway made insufficient anti-money laundering risk assessments last year, the country’s Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) said in its annual report on Friday.
While the FSA listed banks that had been inspected, the report did not say which were found to have shortcomings.
A number of banks have been dragged into a scandal at Danske Bank, the Estonian branch of which was used for 200 billion euros ($227 billion) of suspicious payments between 2007 and 2015, knocking their shares and fuelling investor fears. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik Editing by David Goodman)
