Anti-money laundering (AML)
This refers to the laws, regulations and procedures that are designed to prevent criminals from disguising illegally obtained funds as legitimate income.
Though anti-money laundering laws cover a limited range of transactions and criminal behaviour, their implications are far-reaching.
AML laws and regulations target criminal activities including market manipulation, trade in illegal goods, corruption of public funds and tax evasion, as well as the methods used to conceal these crimes and the money derived from them.
If you're a manager
Ensure all books and records are accurate.
Follow all controls to ensure all our records, reports, invoices and payments are correct and meet our commercial, legal and regulatory requirements.
Be vigilant for the signs of potential money laundering.
Only do business with customers and third-parties involved in legitimate business activities, and ensure all funds and payments are from legitimate sources.
Ensure third party due diligence is periodically reviewed.
If in any doubt raise the matter at once to our Divisional Ethics & Compliance Lead or Legal Department.
