Anti-money laundering services

Money laundering and financing of terrorism risks can have a detrimental effect on your business and personal reputation. To protect against these threats, your firm is required to perform anti-money laundering (‘AML’) and know-your-customer (‘KYC’) checks. Robust customer due diligence (‘CDD’) is a crucial element of an overall risk management framework that can effectively mitigate these risks.

What is AML and why is it important?

Anti-money laundering (AML) encompasses the laws, regulations, and processes designed to combat financial crimes by preventing money laundering activities. AML measures are crucial because they safeguard your business and the broader financial sector against the threats posed by financial crimes, ensuring integrity and stability.

What are the key objectives of AML regulations?

The primary objectives of AML regulations are to help detect and report suspicious activities, including underlying offences leading to money laundering and terrorist financing, such as securities fraud and market manipulation. These regulations are essential for maintaining a transparent and secure financial environment.
