What Is the Purpose of AML Compliance Professionals?

The core purpose of anti-money laundering professionals is to put in place processes and controls within a firm to proactively fight against money laundering, terrorist financing and other types of financial crime.

Implementing anti-money laundering policies which are aligned with regulatory obligations

Overseeing all aspects in relation to regulation, policies, procedures and controls

Establishing and maintaining appropriate risk-based monitoring processes

Proactively overseeing AML/LYC as well as CDD policies and procedures

Taking part in internal anti-money laundering training to members of staff
