SEB comments on the decision from the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority
Stockholm 25 June 2020
SEB has received the decision by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (FSA) following its supervisory review of SEB’s routines and processes with regards to the regulatory frameworks that govern anti-money laundering. The Swedish FSA has decided to issue SEB a remark, which is a lower degree of an administrative sanction that is issued when a breach has not been deemed to be serious. The FSA has also decided to issue SEB an administrative fine of SEK 1bn, which corresponds to about 14 percent of the maximum amount the FSA can impose in this case, as well as a precept to take certain measures to improve its transaction monitoring.
“SEB will now analyse the decision and revert with the bank’s view. We always strive to adhere to current regulations and our high internal standards, and we continuously develop the bank’s abilities to prevent, detect and report suspected money laundering and other types of financial crime. That work is of highest priority and will never end, not least since crime constantly finds new ways”, says President and CEO Johan Torgeby.
The Swedish FSA has conducted its reviews in cooperation with the Baltic supervisory authorities. All Swedish and Baltic supervisory authorities have hereby concluded their reviews regarding SEB’s anti-money laundering work.

New Option Addresses Expenses Not Covered by Standard Homeowners Policies Jersey City, NJ, July 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ISO, a Verisk (Nasdaq:VRSK) business, has launched a new homeowners endorsement to address damage to underground utility lines, a risk that isn’t always handled by municipalities or covered in standard homeowners insurance policies. The new endorsement for the ISO Homeowners Program can be used to provide coverage related to underground pipes, wires, and some buried equipment from a range of causes, including explosions, tree root growth, and wear and tear. “Claims arising from buried utilities often come as a surprise because deterioration is hidden until a loss of service occurs,” said Doug Caccese, president of ISO Personal Lines. “Excavating the line, fixing or replacing it, and repairing related damage can cost thousands of dollars. Our new endorsement is the kind of value-added enhancement that many consumers are looking for in today’s competitive homeowner
