Financial Crime – the Reality
  • The FSA has broadened its monitoring scope to cover all types of financial crime.
  • There is no offence of fraud.
  • Any knowledge or suspicion of a successful crime – i.e.one yielding a benefit to the criminal – is reportable under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
  • Crimes blessed with fraudulent features are no different from any others in terms of AML compliance and reporting.
  • The FSA is not letting up at all on AML compliance monitoring.

Monitoring
  • Richard Kusnierz, Investigative Data Mining

“Fraud is committed by people manipulating the same systems and controls designed to prevent, detect and safeguard company assets. Consequently you cannot rely on those systems to detect fraud; you have to apply a different approach.”

monitoring13
Monitoring
  • For those thoughts, in the context of fraud, think anti-money laundering compliance as well.
  • Monitoring for anti-money laundering requirements also means having to be willing to:
  • THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX!
  • BUILD IN SANITY CHECKS!
looking ahead
Looking Ahead
  • The 3rd European Directive
  • Still at the draft stage
  • Limited change for the UK
  • Formalising obligation to go right back to ultimate beneficial ownership
  • Much squealing by the professionals on the Continent.
