John F. Caruso

Principal, KPMG

John is a principal in KPMG’s Forensic Advisory Services practice. Based in New York, John brings a wealth of experience and diverse skills to the Forensics, Anti-Money-Laundering (AML) and Financial Crimes practices at our Firm. Prior to joining KPMG, John was a Managing Director and the Americas Regional Head of Financial Crimes and AML at one of the world’s largest global banking organizations. With responsibility for all aspects of the Americas operation, John led that bank’s development of a comprehensive compliance program. His significant achievements there included management and oversight of teams responsible for the creation and maintenance of policies and procedures; testing; training; investigative/financial intelligence programs; transaction monitoring; OFAC/sanctions compliance; FCPA/anti-corruption; and business line AML compliance. John was the primary contact for the bank’s regulators (the FRBNY, OCC, SEC, inter alia) during all AML-related examinations. In addition, one of John’s key achievements was the successful response to a previously-issued FRBNY Written Agreement against the Bank, which was lifted during John’s tenure.
