Criminals’ use of financial services products and services to conceal and legitimise the proceeds of their crimes has resulted in governments’ enacting legislation and regulations intended to combat money laundering (ML) and terrorism financing (TF).
Certain entities, including licensed financial institutions, must comply with applicable anti-money laundering (AML) and combatting the financing of terrorism (CFT) requirements mandated by regulators and authorities.
Such AML/CFT requirements generally require an organisation to assess the ML and TF risks posed by the organisation’s business activities and customer base, and to adopt and maintain effective policies, procedures, controls, and monitoring capabilities to mitigate those risks.
Organisations should engage Pragma to assess whether their current anti-money laundering/combatting the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) compliance program meet local requirements.
