Is your anti-money laundering combating the financing of terrorism program up to par?
According to the United Nations, over $1.6 trillion in criminal proceeds are laundered annually. Can drug traffickers and terrorism financers take advantage of gaps in your gaming operations Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CTF) compliance program to facilitate their criminal activity?
Gaming laboratories International (GLI ®) experts specialize in identifying and monitoring suspicious activity and have experience providing training and AML and CFT compliance in accordance with the following industry best practices.
AML & CFT Risk Assessments
Countries and corporations have different legal and financial systems and cannot use identical measures to fight money laundering and terrorist financings. Best practices dictate that assessing a particular entity’s specific risk, via a risk assessment, is the first step in combating money laundering and terrorist financing. Let GLI’s Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists help identify your risks and allocate your compliance resources effectively.
Internal Control Auditing
Putting your AML & CFT compliance program into motion is not enough. Most AML & CFT regulations and best practices mandate that your program is independently monitored and evaluated on an annual basis to ensure its effectiveness and identify new risk factors. Be assured that your audit findings and conclusions are reliable by allowing the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists at GLI to conduct your required annual independent audit.
Regulatory Consultation for Rule Drafting
Money laundering, terrorist financing and the financing of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction are serious threats to security and the integrity of the global financial system. The Financial Action Task Force (FAFT) released a series of recommendations that are the basis on which all countries should meet the shared objective of tackling money laundering, terrorist financing and the financing of proliferation. These recommendations call upon all countries to effectively implement these measures in their national systems. GLI’s Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists can assist your country to fight against criminal proceeds by effectively employing the FAFT recommendations in your existing regulatory environment.
Development of Currency Translations and Suspicious Activity Reporting Systems
Casinos are the new front line against money laundering and terrorist financing. Effective AML & CFT compliance programs rely on the filing of suspicious activity reports (SARs) and currency transaction reports (CTRs). These reports are legally mandated in order to document any suspicious behavior in conjunction with financial transactions. Properly filed SARs and CTRs provide vital information to law enforcement and protect your organization from regulatory and criminal threats. GLI Anti-Money Laundering Specialists can help your organization develop the strategies and tools to identify, investigate and report suspicious activities.
