Anti Money Laundering

With the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive having been enacted in in June 2017 the regulatory environment has never been more challenging. Within this regulatory environment Red Flag Alert is working with businesses to ensure its data is supporting their AML processes in the most efficient way.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) policies, which include ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) checks, play a pivotal role in preventing money laundering, identity theft and financial crime such as fraud. Across all industries and sectors, AML compliance is a legal requirement.

The sanction which can be imposed by the FCA on specific individuals can be severe, so understanding the regulations (even for SMEs) is important and claiming ignorance is not an excuse.

At Red Flag Alert, our AML service has:

  • Full range of risk level checking with unbeatable match rates.
  • Fast and accurate first time passes.
  • KYC and AML Solutions.
  • ID Verification.
  • Enhanced due diligence (EDD) and biometric facial matching available.
  • Sanctions & PEPs databases.
  • PEPs and Sanctions list screening, updated in real-time.
  • Instant, secure and cost-effective.
  • Data which is categorised and alerts can be setup.
  • Simple, easy to use interface.
  • Secure audit trail.
  • No set-up fees.

Our AML service has been developed in conjunction with Begbies Traynor Group PLC and GB Group PLC: a world leader in AML services and ID verification. The development process was extensive and the result is the most comprehensive AML solution in the market today. 

Fourth AML Directive – 2017

The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 came into force on 26 June 2017, implementing the EU’s Fourth Money Laundering Directive and replacing the 2007 Regulations.

The 2017 Regulations signal a shift away from a prescriptive approach, towards one requiring regulated businesses to consider and act on the specific risk factors they face.

To ensure compliance with the new law, organisations must introduce preventive measures to prevent the facilitation of nefarious financial activity such as new processes, risk assessments and internal audits. Red Flag Alert’s revolutionary AML checking service should be your first port of call for your compliance needs.
