The risk of non-compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”), Counter Financing Terrorism (“CFT”) and Know Your Customer (“KYC”) requirements continues to increase, and as evidenced by a number of high profile fines and investigations in recent years, firms are increasingly under pressure to identify new methods and means to manage their AML/CFT risks more effectively.

Core AML/CFT services PwC can help you with

Whilst businesses are still updating their operations, systems and procedures, they also need to manage further change that is already lying on the horizon. Operating in such an environment presents numerous challenges and it is not uncommon that something slips through the net.

Growing pressure from Regulators to comply with AML/CFT rules and intense press coverage of scandals have pushed this topic to the top of the Management’s agenda. The reputational threat, as well as, significant fines being levied make it crucial to set up and maintain cost-efficient AML/CFT compliance measures and solutions.
