Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFIs)
Non-bank financial institutions play an essential role in driving economic growth and providing financial services to underserved populations. However, their unique characteristics and operational models present significant challenges in achieving effective AML compliance.
In the global fight against financial crimes, AML regulations have become a critical component in safeguarding the integrity of the financial system. Despite concerted efforts to combat money laundering, financial institutions continue to face persistent challenges in effectively managing AML risks. Evolving money laundering techniques, regulatory complexity, resource constraints, fragmented information sharing, and rapidly changing technology contribute to the persistence of these challenges.
Designated Businesses and Professionals
Money laundering is a global concern that threatens the integrity of the financial system and undermines the rule of law. In response, governments and regulatory bodies have implemented Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations to combat this illicit activity. While financial institutions are at the forefront of AML compliance efforts, designated non-financial businesses and professionals (DNFBPs) also play a critical role. However, DNFBPs face unique challenges when it comes to AML compliance.
