Meet the role players
  • The role-players who shape the environment

Europe and the 5AMLD
  • Europe and the 5AMLD  

    Europe and the 5AMLD is changing the way any other business will interact with Europe

Money laundering processes
  • Money laundering processes  

    ´Money laundering is global, national boundaries are irrelevant to the laundering of proceeds of crime, much of which takes place through financial institutions and the links between them

  • Risk assessment  

    Where countries identify higher risks, they should ensure that their AML/CFT regime adequately addresses such risks. Where

    countries identify lower risks, they may decide to allow simplified measures for some of the FATF Recommendations under certain conditions.

    The results of a risk assessment can be used for a variety of reasons, including to:

    · identify gaps or opportunities for improvement in AML policies, procedures and processes

    · make informed decisions about risk appetite and implementation of control efforts, allocation of resources, technology spend

    · assist management in understanding how the structure of a business unit or business line’s AML compliance programme aligns with its risk profile

    · develop risk mitigation strategies including applicable internal controls and therefore lower a business unit or business line’s residual risk exposure

    · ensure senior management are made aware of the key risks, control gaps and remediation efforts

    · assist senior management with strategic decisions in relation to commercial exits and disposals

    · ensure regulators are made aware of the key risks, control gaps and remediation efforts across the FI

    · assist management in ensuring that resources and priorities are aligned with its risks. 

Terrorist financing

    Countries should criminalise terrorist financing on the basis of the Terrorist Financing Convention, and should criminalise not only the financing of terrorist acts but also the financing of terrorist organisations and individual terrorists even in the absence of a link to a specific terrorist act or acts.

Record keeping
  • Record keeping  

    Records must be sufficient to permit reconstruction of individual transactions (including the amounts and types of currency involved, if any) so as to provide, if necessary, evidence for prosecution of criminal activity

  • Correspondent Banking  

    In addition to performing normal customer due diligence measures, a business is prohibited from entering into, or continuing, a correspondent banking relationship with shell banks

    Money or value transfer services (MVTS) need to be licensed or registered, and subject to effective systems for monitoring and ensuring compliance

Confiscation and provisional measures

    Countries should adopt measures similar to those set forth in the Vienna Convention, the Palermo Convention, and the Terrorist Financing Convention, including legislative measures.
