Three essential components of an AML/CFT regime:

    • A functional compliance culture

    • Functional regulatory bodies –
      central Bank, SEC, Insurance Regulator etc

    • An effective financial intelligence unit tasked with:

    • The above processes ideally should be automated
      particularly if they involve high data volumes
From Start to Finish
