AML Risk Assessment

How It Works




What is an AML Risk Assessment?

AML business risk assessments are crucial in designing an AML/CFT compliance framework. Yet surprisingly, AML/CFT risk reports often fail to meet regulatory expectations. Despite the importance of a business risk assessment, businesses still need to work on the technicalities of an adequate risk methodology. Equally, the AML/CFT assessment report must reasonably inform business owners and AML compliance officers of the risks they must manage.

Using regulatory technology, AML360 has simplified the AML/CFT business risk assessment process. The software provides a lower cost for completing a business risk report. Configured to capture the key risks impacting financial industry sectors, the secure login account can be used by lawyers, accountants, real estate agents, banks and any sized financial business entity.

Regulatory Effectiveness

AML360 has subsequently developed a cost-efficient and practical approach for AML business 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.

Professional Approach

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 for easy updates. 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.

Risk-Based Approach: AML Risk Assessment

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 (transaction risk), (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.

AML Risk Assessments: Regulatory Expectation

Most importantly, AML360's AML business risk assessment 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.
