He has been an active participant in the world wide financial sector since Mr. Markowitz has provided hands on, direct advisory services to domestic and international financial providers in their dealings with federal and state oversight authorities and self-regulatory organizations, as . Fifteen years ago, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations flagged correspondent banking as a “Gateway for Money Laundering.” 1 The voluminous report highlighted a number of deficiencies with banks maintaining their correspondent banking relationships. Such deficiencies presented a significant money laundering risk to the U.S. financial system.   Called correspondent banking, HBUS provides these banks with U.S. dollar services, including services to move funds, exchange currencies, cash monetary instruments, and carry out other financial transactions. Correspondent banking can become a major conduit for illicit money flows unless U.S. laws to prevent money laundering are followed.
