An AML risk assessment identifies areas of business operations that are exposed to facilitating money laundering or terrorism financing. Access to an AML360 account will produce an AML business risk report within an hour. Thereafter, updates take minutes.
AML risk assessments are crucial in designing an AML/CFT compliance framework. However, until now, AML risk assessments have been developed with cumbersome spreadsheets or sparse word documents. Equally, they often take weeks or months to complete. As a result, AML risk assessments are failing to meet regulatory expectations.
AML360 has subsequently developed a cost-efficient and practical approach for AML risk assessments. Moreover, savings on the use of human resourcing are significant. Accordingly, AML360 has achieved compliance effectiveness with a First Class AML risk assessment. Equally, the most compelling evidence is that AML business risk assessments are our expertise. After all, we recognise AML risk assessments guide a business in developing policies, procedures and controls. Therefore, if inadequate risk measurements are relied upon, the implemented program will also have ineffective outcomes.
Importantly, data collation, record keeping and compliance reporting are automated to ensure a seamless workflow.
Firstly, the platform is intuitive and you have a dedicated AML compliance professional available for ad hoc queries.
Explicitly identify those customers that present greater ML/FT risks to your business.
Equally, know the characteristics causing an increased risk for products and services.
Following onboarding, how are interactions with customers managed?
Generally, country risks arise from customers, transaction reach and business relationships.
Markedly, institutions of all sizes can take advantage of AML360's AML business risk assessment technology. Therefore, if you are the Head of Risk at a tier 1 bank or an owner/operator of a small legal or accountancy firm, AML360 provides an online account to complete an AML/CFT business risk assessment up-to-date. This is especially important when core business demands are heavy, leaving less time to meet AML/CFT compliance. Comparatively, without automated processes, AML/CFT compliance obligations are likely to lag, resulting in regulatory risk.
To illustrate AML risks, your AML business risk assessment report is divided into five divisions. To summarise, the report details (1) The Nature, size and complexity of the business, (2) Customers (B2B & B2C), (3) Products / Services, (4) the Method of Delivering Products/Services and (5) Geography Risks. Furthermore, each division provides a heat map, a risk score, risk ratings of critical indicators, and a narration to explain the risks. The report explicitly provides detail of low to high-risk characteristics within business operations.
Most importantly, AML360's regulatory technology is easy to navigate, easily reached through a web account and affordable to small businesses. Moreover, now that AML360 has simplified a complex risk analysis process, your business will gain confidence that regulatory expectation is met.
To conclude, your money laundering risk assessment report examines 50+ key risk indicators. Your report includes colour coding to identify those areas representing more significant risk. Additionally, your report provides narrations to explain the risks, including prompts to manage the development of policies, procedures and controls.
AML360’s regulatory technology automates AML business risk assessments and reduces human resourcing costs. Furthermore, easily manage the analysis process from a secure Cloud account.
