Our AML Policy
Money laundering is the act of converting money or other material values gained from illegal activity (terrorism, drug dealing, illegal arms trade, corruption, human traffic and etc.) into money or investments that appear to be legitimate. Such activity is used because of the illegal source of money and other material values cannot be traced.
The AML/CTF Act applies to persons who provide specified services (known as “designated services”). Persons providing designated services are called “reportingentities”. The AML/CTF Act adopts a risk-based approach. This approach means that the reportingentity will decide how best to identify, mitigate and manage the risk of money launderingand terrorism financing through its business.
