Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism
Recent regulatory changes and the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Act have highlighted the importance of a robust AML/CFT programme. All financial institutions play a pivotal role in the detection and prevention of the laundering of the proceeds of crime, yet detection rates are traditionally low. Improving the use of technology through enhanced data quality, optimised transaction monitoring and effective control design and implementation is key.
Since the Act’s introduction, all reporting entities (as defined under the Act) are now required to have bi-annual audits undertaken to ensure they are in compliance with the Act, by having designed and implemented an AML/CFT risk assessment and supporting programme.
