Financial Crime focuses on the day-to-day activity required in banks and other regulated firms to ensure that they and their honest customers are protected from any aspects of these crimes. Anti- money laundering (AML) controls are important to prevent financial crime and complying with regulations is vital for businesses to deter financial crime activity.
Bribery and corruption are two separate yet interlinked concepts. Financial sanctions used to deliver public policy objectives have risen rapidly up the political agenda in the UK, elsewhere in the European Union and at the United Nations.
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Regulators across the world state that part of their responsibility is to ensure that the integrity of the markets are maintained. UK financial institutions are responsible for minimising their risk of being used for criminal purposes, particularly the facilitation of money laundering or terrorist financing.
