Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Reviews

National Anti-Money Laundering regulations, aimed at preventing the entry of money, generally obtained through criminal activity to the financial system as well as preventing the financing of terrorism, have recently been subject to significant amendments. The recent changes in the regulations set out major compliance obligations for a number of sectors, particularly for the financial services industry.

The regulations envisage collection of detailed information on the clients of the obliged parties operating, by means of risk management, oversight and monitoring, training and internal audit activities. Successful implementation of these procedures, which require long-term and serious investment, may present a challenge in sectors with limited knowledge of this particular field.
