Established and proven process for successful AML compliance risk management programs
Anti-Money Laundering Challenge
Money laundering, international trade sanctions, bribery, corruption and modern slavery. In our globalised digital economy, it is becoming increasingly difficult to prevent criminals from using sophisticated money laundering schemes, despite the best efforts of law enforcement bodies.
These are enormous challenges for Australia’s ~16,000 businesses who are required to ensure the billions of transactions they process every year meet strict Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorism Financing (CTF) guidelines. Failure to correctly identify possible money laundering activity has consequences for any Australian businesses involved in financial services, foreign exchange, gambling or credit contracts.
For example, in 2017 Tabcorp was fined $45 million for AML failures, only to be topped by CBA’s $700 million in 2018, which in turn was surpassed by 2020’s eye-watering $1.3 billion fine for Westpac. Creating a fully compliant AML and CTF solution for small and large businesses is often seen as a trade-off between cost, customer experience and time.
