2018 was a busy year for Lime. In addition to looking after clients, Stuart got re-certified in Anti Money Laundering by the International Compliance Association (ICA) and attended the Annual Conference in London. The ICA runs multiple events, seminars and webinars as part of their BIG Compliance Conversation.
Keeping up-to-date is an important part of the compliance world. Regulation and guidance is constantly evolving, and of course, the bad guys don’t stand still either.
As well as being a Fellow of the ICA, Stuart has now joined the Association of Certified Anti Money-laundering Specialists (ACAMS). In February, he will be attending their Anti Financial Crime Symposium in Cyprus. (A hard life, isn’t it?)
Lime keeps on top of developments at a supra-national, national and sector basis. Supporting our clients means keeping them informed of what’s changing that is relevant, and what’s changing that isn’t.
For most people, an entire day talking compliance is a particularly cruel version of hell. That’s why we do it for them. Don’t tell anyone, but Stuart can happily geek out on the minutiae of anti money laundering policies for hours at a time.
Have you tested your policies and procedures? Having nice manuals is one thing, but are they followed? Lime conducts stress tests to establish what is actually happening at the coal face. Regulators and Bank partners alike are big fans of these. They provide comfort that Firms are on top of their game.
If you are concerned that your AML policies and procedures might not be as up-to-date as they should be, get in touch. We’re more than happy to have a confidential and free chat.
