Helping you to fight financial crime

Financial crime prevention, Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) are now significant line items in all financial services organisations operating budgets. Balancing the competing demands of operational efficiency with effective financial crime and AML / CFT risk mitigation and regulatory compliance remains a constant challenge.

We can help you respond to financial crime threats proactively, developing and improving your financial crime and AML / CFT framework. We can also help you respond and react to nascent financial crime threats, including those highlighted by regulators, as well as dealing with known problems. We cover the full range of financial crime and subject matter areas, including AML / CFT, sanctions, bribery and corruption, fraud and theft, and misconduct.
