Anti-money laundering

Deter and detect money laundering and terrorist financing in an evolving regulatory environment

Anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-terrorist financing (ATF) programs are becoming more complex as the regulatory environment evolves to keep pace with sophisticated money laundering and terrorist financing techniques seen globally. Canadian regulators are now under international pressure to strengthen enforcement activities in industries that previously haven’t come under scrutiny.

Our team of specialists can help you develop an AML, ATF or sanctions program that keeps up with the risks your organization faces and aligns with regulatory expectations and new developments as they emerge. The result? You can safeguard the reputation of your business and mitigate regulatory repercussions.

How we can help

Helping you anticipate and reduce the chance of an incident in your business

Our team has extensive knowledge of AML and ATF industry practices, and can help you design and sustain a program that suits your specific needs while meeting regulatory expectations. We can also help proactively assess the effectiveness of your AML or ATF programs and provide recommendations on areas that need enhancement.

Helping you monitor and detect the important issues to your business

Bring awareness to the areas that need attention through monitoring. Our team can help you create programs to effectively monitor and detect issues related to AML, ATF, or sanctions across people, processes and technologies.

Helping you respond to auditor or regulator findings in a sustainable and well-managed way

We understand what’s expected when it comes to developing and implementing action plans to address AML or ATF findings from an audit or regulator. Our subject matter specialists can help you establish appropriate responses to these findings. We can also provide you with the resources you need to execute any action plans with minimal disruption within your organization.

Helping you address and remediate issues in your AML and ATF programs

Fixing historical gaps in your program will ultimately strengthen your AML and ATF regime. But it can be a time-consuming and disruptive task to address client identification deficiencies, conduct look backs on a large volume of transactions for suspicious activity, screen clients against sanctions lists or determine if clients are designated persons or entities. We can help by providing the skilled resourcing you need to complete a remediation project in a timely and efficient manner.
