About AML

Money laundering is the process by which criminals disguise the original ownership and control of the proceeds of criminal conduct by making such proceeds appear to have derived from a legitimate source. Anti-money laundering (AML) refers to the activities financial institutions perform to achieve compliance with legal requirements to actively monitor for and report suspicious activities.
Anti-Money Laundering

Money laundering is a crime that impacts the society and the financial situation of the nation.  Hence the government has set up governing bodies, regulations and laws to combat money laundering. Money Service Businesses are major targets of money laundering activities.  Hence, it is very crucial to be aware of what money laundering is and how it is executed.  It is also important to know ways of combating the money laundering activities and to have a thorough knowledge of the laws, regulations and governing bodies that are related to money laundering activities.  One should also be aware of the consequences of not being able to combat/report a money laundering activity as an MSB.

Slip up in reporting any money laundering activity can lead to legal action and even cancellation of licence.  Hence making a suspicious activity report (SAR) is very crucial.  Making an SAR is a lengthy process involving many stages of communication.
