Anti-Money Laundering - living by laws and regulations

Anti-money laundering (AML) is an area of expertise that also includes financing of terrorists and compliance with international trade restrictions. AML is a complicated and expensive compliance field. Implementation of effective routines, real-time customer analysis and laundering customer lists against sanctions lists requires a deep understanding of law, technology, business processes and risk.

The area is increasingly subject to fines and personal criminal prosecution by the authorities. The money laundering Act of 2018 sets great demands. In the worst case fines may await you should you not have everything in place.
