Anti-Money Laundering (AML)

Anti-money laundering (AML) practices underpin the integrity of financial services providers and have a far-reaching impact on the broader economy. Rules and regulations relating to the prevention of money laundering and the countering of terrorist financing are becoming increasingly demanding, imposing rigorous standards to assess risks and prevent misuse of funds.

Bennetti Consulting advises companies in understanding and addressing the challenges posed by money laundering (ML) and financing of terrorism (FT) in their industries.

AML includes a wide range of services designed to help companies adhere to the relevant legal requirements, and put them in practice by creating systems that safeguard their business from being used to launder money or fund illicit activities.

Mitigating the risks of money laundering for your business

Anti-money laundering services comprise a variety of procedures that fulfil the legal obligations imposed by regulatory bodies to stem the flow of funds generated through criminal activities or those destined to fund terrorists and terrorist activities. A qualified legal advisor can guide companies in adhering to these requirements and implement the necessary measures when offering their services to clients.

With a proven track record in this field, Bennetti Consulting assists organisations in drafting documentation relating to AML policy and putting into practice a strategy which allows them to meet regulatory expectations and mitigate successfully the risks associated with money laundering and funding of terrorism.
