Anti-Money Laundering

Have you updated your approach to AML compliance in the light of the 2017 regulations?

Anti-Money Laundering, Counter Terrorist Financing and wider financial crime should be at the top of every firm’s compliance agenda. The Money Laundering Regulations 2017 have brought in a number of key changes requiring firms to update and upgrade their systems, policies and procedures.

We offer a complete service to help you implement the necessary changes, including:

    • a comprehensive risk assessment to identify risk faced by your firm;
    • review of your current systems, policies and procedures and necessary updates in light of the new regulations and risks identified;
    •  independent auditing to test effectiveness of your systems and controls;
    • assistance with client engagement and due diligence procedures;
    • training for your MLRO and relevant staff at all levels;
    • support and advice on suspicious activity reporting

See Richard Robinson’s article ‘Compliance with the new Money Laundering Regulations – Where to start’.
