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.
