AML Accelerate launches a category defining AML/CFT compliance platform – 20th February 2018

Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) compliance requirements are being revised and new requirements are being introduced and enforced around the world, impacting more than 30 financial and non-financial industry sectors, with many being brought into AML/CFT for the first time.

Industry sectors including lawyers, accountants, real-estate agents and dealers in high-value goods are soon to be subject to AML/CFT laws which are being progressively rolled-out with law practices in New Zealand the first required to comply by 1 July 2018. Non-compliance could result in fines, penalties, civil or criminal prosecution, loss of license and reputation damage. The estimated cost for an average business to achieve compliance is close to $40,000*.

Later this year, the Australian Government is expected to follow suit which will require tens of thousands of businesses to achieve compliance in order to combat money laundering and terrorism financing. In response to this unprecedented challenge to both large and small organisations, AML Accelerate has developed an easy-to-use, cost-effective platform designed by experts that delivers not only money laundering and terrorism financing risk assessments, but peace of mind for users.

“Until now, access to the right expertise has been costly, in short supply and outside the reach of most,” said Anthony Quinn, AML Accelerate co-founder. “AML Accelerate represents a paradigm shift in the way compliance is achieved, providing businesses of any size with a cost effective, scalable and accessible solution to the challenge of fulfilling their AML/CTF compliance requirements.”
