Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment

Increasingly, financial crime regulators have been moving away from traditional ‘prescribed’ compliance to ‘risk-based’ approaches, which recognise that one-size does not fit all. Whilst this offers welcome flexibility in developing proportionate controls to mitigate risks, regulated entities are required to develop and maintain a framework for identifying, assessing, mitigating and managing risks, which is often subject to independent review.

Failure to develop and implement a comprehensive and effectively managed AML/CFT Program can expose organisations to financial crime risks and increase the likelihood of breaching AML regulations which can expose both organisations and the individuals that work for them to both civil and criminal penalties.

Do you know how to spot red flags? Do you know whether your approach to risk assessment is compliant?

What is the Money Laundering Risk Assessment platform?

The Money Laundering Risk Assessment platform helps organisations to identify, assess, mitigate and manage money laundering and terrorism financing risks across different dimensions and over 300 different risk factors by providing a standardised process for performing risk assessments on the core requirements of the AML/CFT program and provides a graphical depiction of a risk matrix, depicting the areas of higher risk, highlighting focus areas. This helps organisations in designing, implementing and maintaining robust policies, procedures, systems and controls to reduce these risks.

Solution Overview

The Money Laundering Risk Assessment Tool contains over 300 different risk factors which are organised across different risk categories:
