ANTI MONEY LAUNDERING ("AML") AND COUNTER TERRORIST FINANCING ("CTF") POLICY
Money laundering is defined as the process where the identity of the proceeds of crime is so disguised that it gives an impression of legitimate income. Criminals specifically target financial services firms through which they attempt to launder criminal proceeds without the firms’ knowledge or suspicion.
In response to the scale and effect of money laundering, the European Union has passed Directives designed to combat money laundering and terrorism. These Directives, together with regulations, rules and industry guidance, form the cornerstone of our AML/CTF obligations and outline the offenses and penalties for failing to comply.
We are currently unregulated and does not fall within the scope of the AML/CTF obligations, the senior management have implemented systems and procedures that meet the standards set forth by the European Union. This decision reflects the senior management’s desire to prevent money laundering and not be used by criminals to launder proceeds of crime.
