Anti-Money Laundering

2019 has definitely been a challenging year with different legislative and regulatory changes. The transposition of the 4th and 5th Directives, in line with the concentration of international efforts to fight money laundering and financing of terrorism, will keep compliance officers busy. Then of course there is the visit of the FATF to assess Luxembourg. All this puts AML once again in the spotlight.

How we can help

  • Review internal policies and procedures to identify gaps in the implementation of the new regulations.
  • Provide support around RBE and the new beneficial owner obligations.
  • Provide support in amending risk assessments to address regulatory requirements.
  • Remediate client portfolios in order to be compliant with regulations.
  • Organise training sessions on how to prepare for the FATF visit, including dry run interviews with key people.

Trust and transparency solutions

Many organisations depend on third party service providers for a range of critical services and support including hosting or managing financial and non-financial information, providing critical business functions and delivering on major infrastructure initiatives. 

You can stay competitive by using multiple customer and vendor relationships and accessing specialised solutions and skills. However, this advantage offers challenges around protecting your reputational, financial, operational and compliance requirements as your dependence on third parties increases.
Your management, board and shareholders demand confidence in the controls and compliance capabilities of suppliers, vendors and service organisations. They expect that you have the processes in place to effectively oversee third party arrangements.

Organisations can effectively communicate accurate information about their risk management and controls framework through a controls assurance report. Through a broad range of assurance reporting services such as ISAE 3402, ISAE 3000, SOC 1, SOC 2 and Agreed Upon Procedures, we can help you assess your control posture with a focus on controlling costs, mitigating risk and enhancing trust and transparency.

We can help you:

  • Provide the comfort and assurance your customers, suppliers, regulators and additional stakeholders need;
  • Prepare objective reporting about your control environment on which multiple customers and auditors can rely; and
  • Identify weaknesses and risks.

Data Assurance

The volume and variety of data has increased exponentially in recent years, revolutionising the decision-making process. Intuition is no longer acceptable for executives when making big decisions. The real challenge comes in converting data into a more comprehensible and user-friendly format, creating actionable insights and applying these to transform your organisation. 

Knowing that the data you hold is fit for purpose and well-managed is key - this allows you to determine how to analyse data and to be confident in the decisions you make.

Digital transformation dramatically accelerated over the past months as a response to the pandemic. In such circumstances, ensuring that your data migration to new IT infrastructure and systems is properly managed is key to successfully transform your organisation.

IT and Business Resilience

As the business environment becomes more complex, resilience continues to climb the agenda of organisations. There has been countless examples of businesses brought to their knees by a lack of foresight or poor IT and crisis management. These events highlight the shortcomings of traditional risk management and lack of capabilities, tools and approach in organisations needed to survive and prosper in an age of uncertainty. Business resilience builds on the principles of business continuity but extends much further to help enhance your organisation’s immune system so you are able to tackle challenges, fend off illness and bounce back more quickly.
