The firm-wide risk assessment is one of, if not the, most important AML documents you will have in your business. It is often described as the backbone of money laundering compliance in your firm. Once this is in place all your policies and procedures, training and due diligence will flow from it.

Regulation 18 of the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 made it a legal requirement that all firms subject to the regulations must have this written document in place. It helps to identify the risks your business faces.

Although many templates are in circulation it is a very specific document to your business and must be personalised to suit your firm.

The regulations tell us the five key areas to focus on - clients, geographic, products and services, transactions, and delivery channels but there are many other elements that need to be considered.

As this document is always the first thing the regulators ask for when preparing for a visit, and some regulators ask you to sign a declaration to confirm you are compliant with the MLR 2017, it is important to get this right.

This new virtual classroom seminar will show you how.
