Design and Implementation of AML/CFT Risk and Sanction Risk Assessment
We assist clients with the design and implementation of AML/CFT and sanction risk assessments that are foundational to effective compliance programmes. We also work with our clients to ensure the proper alignment between their risk assessments and their overall AML/ CFT and sanction compliance programmes and to introduce and leverage innovative technologies to improve efficiency.
Programme Development and Remediation
We help clients with the development and/or enhancement of all aspects of their AML/CFT and sanction compliance programmes including, but not limited to, risk strategy and risk appetite statements, policies and procedures, job descriptions, staffing analyses, and board and management reporting.
AML/CFT and Sanction System Selection, Implementation and Utilisation
We assist in the selection of compliance technology systems and tools to support ongoing AML/CFT and sanctions monitoring. This includes vendor review and comparison, assessment of current and future business and functional requirements, data lineage and validation, system optimisation, implementation support, pre-and post-implementation reviews, system validation and overall system project planning and management.
Money Laundering Reviews and Investigations
We assist clients in performing regulator-mandated lookbacks and other transaction reviews using our proprietary workflow and data analytics tools to help them comply to the guidelines of the HKMA, SFC, Financial Conduct Authority and Insurance Authority in Hong Kong. We also identify and transactions in-scope, code the desired rules and scenarios, determine through quantitative and qualitative analysis the appropriate thresholds, and generate alerts, which our investigation specialists review to determine whether any suspicious activity is present.
Independent Testing of AML Programmes
We assist internal audit departments in developing comprehensive AML/CFT and sanctions audit programmes, including risk assessments, risk and control matrices, audit work programmes and training for audit teams. We also perform independent testing of existing AML programmes on an outsource or co-source basis and work with or on behalf of internal audit departments to validate actions taken by companies to address regulatory exceptions.
We assist organisations with the development, implementation and delivery of AML/CFT and sanctions training that is customised to reflect a company’s primary business activities, customer profile, current AML/CFT and sanctions knowledge base and internal procedures. Customised and relevant AML/CFT training provides the basis for a successful AML/CFT and sanctions compliance programme.
AML and Sanctions Model Validation and Optimisation Analytics
We work closely with our data and advanced analytics practise to provide our clients with independent model validation for all AML and sanctions related models, perform AML and sanctions model tuning and threshold/matching score setting, provide advanced data validation and AML analytics, advise on scenario and alert optimisation, and assist with transaction monitoring scenario development, testing, and supporting documentation.
