    What is Anti-Money Laundering (AML)?

    Money laundering is when criminals integrate their illegally-obtained cash into the financial system, so it looks like it was earned legitimately. ‘Anti-money laundering’ refers to the laws, regulations, and procedures designed to prevent money laundering.

    Firms in finance, property, law and insurance are legally obliged to comply with these AML regulations, as well as art markets and other high-value dealers. The compliance of these sectors contributes to the wider battle against financial crime, and protects firms within them from the risk of money laundering too.

    Why conduct an AML check, when you can run a SmartSearch?

    There are several different key components when it comes to AML checks, but a SmartSearch incorporates KYC, PEP and Sanctions screening, along with ongoing monitoring and enhanced due diligence. While a fragmented approach to these checks is time-consuming and inefficient, a SmartSearch is one simple, holistic compliance solution.

    The time in which it takes to complete a ‘SmartSearch’ was a huge USP to choose SmartSearch as a provider. The checks provide a quick and simple solution to identify and verify clients and removes the hurdle of obtaining hard copy or certified copy documents. I find the potential match interface very helpful as it generally provides enough information to be able to properly assess the results and enable us to make a decision on whether we proceed.

    We upload new clients via a monthly ‘bulk upload’, thus saving time and resources to focus on other areas of development and growth. The biographic information returned as part of the PEP, Sanctions, RCA and ‘Special Interest Person’ screening returns a deep level of detail, enabling us to undertake effective risk-profiling and discount false positives. Once we took advantage of the new ‘suppressions’ at no additional charge, this made our processes much more efficient due to the reduced the manual workload required by our compliance team.
