AML Investigators, or Anti-Money Laundering Investigators, are forensic accountants who have specialized training in anti-money laundering regulations in order to follow the flow of money through a financial institution's accounts. Responsibilities included on sample resumes for AML Investigators include mitigating risk ratings through policy, procedures, and entity types; and reviewing system-generated alerts that appear to have unusual and/or suspicious activity patterns. No specialized degrees need to be listed on an AML Investigator's resume for consideration, though in order to keep up with an increased demand for the field, candidates with law school degrees have been applying in greater numbers.
