Anti-money Laundering

 

We have extensive experience in Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Act) matters.

Since the Act’s introduction, we have been advising clients to employ an anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CTF) program, in line with their legislative obligations.

With a proactive approach to guiding clients through the process, we advise on the full range of AML/CTF issues. This includes the application of the Act, compliance programs, relevant requirements and implementation, dealings with regulators and regulatory issues.

We are currently advising many wholesale and retail funds-managed clients on their obligations under the AML/CTF legislation and preparing their AML/CTF programs.
