Compliance Alert - Consulting

Consulting

Compliance Alert LLC supports its customers’ Compliance and Regulatory requirements. As an independent organisation we offer an additional line of defence in an increasingly rigorous regulatory environment.

AML Review

We can review your control framework and client files, then prioritise the specific activities needed to remediate any weaknesses identified.

An AML Review includes a detailed review of your AML Policies and Procedures, which includes:

  • A review of your AML/CFT Policy & Procedures
  • Client onboarding procedures and KYC responsibility allocation
  • AML Business Risk Assessment
  • Customer Risk Assessment procedures
  • Ongoing Due Diligence procedures
  • Suspicious Activity reporting

We will also review:

  • the processes in place for transaction monitoring, ongoing sanctions compliance, identifying and reporting suspicious activities and any IT solutions in place to deliver these requirements
  • internal governance arrangements around the AML framework, including internal reporting, escalation processes and dispute resolution
  • the training needs analysis process and corresponding training programme in place
  • a representative sample of Client files across all types of business, geographies and financial services provided, concentrating on those Clients that present the most risk

We will work with you to prioritise the specific activities that must be carried out in order to remediate any weaknesses identified from our review of your AML framework and Client files.

These tasks will be risk-based, time-bound, and assigned an appropriate owner.

Why an independent review can be more powerful

Employing a third-party specialist to conduct your monitoring can be more powerful than in-house assurance activity, where those carrying out the reviews are not always truly independent.

We deliver independent compliance monitoring for many organisations and have done for years. In doing so, we can help bring a fresh view that can only be provided by an independent firm with experience in so many firms.
 

How we can support your Firm

Compliance Alert can help you by:

  • Risk-mapping your business against applicable rules and regulations to define a complete regulatory risk universe for your monitoring programme
  • Creating a bespoke, risk-based Compliance Monitoring Programme, which takes account of your business model, governance arrangements, activities, size, volume and the complexity of your business
  • Phasing the monitoring to ensure that all activities are monitored at least once over a twelve-month period, proportionate to their risk
  • Preparing a report which contains our detailed findings, which are prioritised by risk-rating
  • Making recommendations how to mitigate risks, weaknesses, breaches or remediate ineffective controls identified in the report

Where required, following the Compliance Monitoring review, Compliance Alert can provide support with remediation projects, provision of experienced resources and a follow-up review to confirm resolution of identified issues. Contact us to talk to one of our specialists today.
