What is Money Laundering?

Money laundering is a complex and illicit process that involves disguising the true origin of illegally obtained funds. This illegal activity is aimed at making the proceeds of criminal activities appear as legitimate sources of income. The methods employed by criminals to launder their money are many and varied, ranging from simple transactions to complex financial schemes. The effects of money laundering on economies and financial stability can be devastating, as it undermines the integrity of financial systems and can lead to inflation, currency devaluation, and economic instability.

Why is AML Compliance Important?

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) controls are crucial to protect financial systems from criminal activity. Effective AML programs promote integrity and stability in markets, safeguarding businesses and economies.
