Anti-Money Laundering

Money laundering is the illegal process of concealing the origins of money obtained illegally by passing it through a complex sequence of banking transfers or commercial transactions. The overall scheme of this process returns the money to the launderer in an obscure and indirect way.

One problem of criminal activities is accounting for the proceeds without raising the suspicion of law enforcement agencies. Considerable time and effort may be put into strategies which enable the safe use of those proceeds without raising unwanted suspicion. Implementing such strategies is generally called money laundering. After money has been laundered, it can be used for legitimate purposes.

Despite global regulation, the active role of FATF (The Financial Action Task Force) in setting standards and promoting effective implemantation of legal and regulatory measurs for combatting money laundering and terrorist financing, the disappointing reality is that banks, investment funds, laywers and accountants put their own commercial interests before AML compliance :

- local regulations and laws are rarely enforced
- Financial Intelligence Units are under-resourced
- the amount of AML activity is prolific
- new methods of Money Laundering (e.g. Bitcoin) allow criminals to keep ahead of regulators
- recent secrecy laws (e.g. GDPR) are the money launderers' friend... - law-enforcement lacks the reach and training to act effectively

Intel Suisse has experience of discovering and filing Suspicious Activity Reports in a number of jurisdictions :

- we act as AML Reporting Officers for a number of global investment funds
- we have developed reporting channels for AML in a number of jurisdictions
- we have brought AML complaints against non-reporting lawyers, auditors, funds and companies
- we consider ourselves "ahead of the curve" in AML...
