It threatens both the integrity of the global financial system and global safety and stability. Money laundering and terrorist financing prevention, fraud, theft, bribery and corruption are high on the agenda of the companies we work with, and regulatory scrutiny is driving ever greater focus in this area, presenting additional challenges.

Failure to operate and maintain effective financial crime prevention frameworks, including robust anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (“AML/CFT”) policies and procedures, can result in:

  • Regulatory sanctions, including substantial corporate and personal penalties
  • Financial loss and reputational damage
  • Involuntary criminality, via the support of entities with criminal and/or terrorist ideologies
