Fincrime Compliance Report 2023
In September last year, fscom released its Fincrime Compliance Report which provided an insight into AML audits and more specifically the compliance challenges financial services firms were faced with on a daily basis. The report analysed AML audit findings across the 57 audits which were conducted from July 2021 to July 2022. This year, fscom has conducted a similar analysis to identify and report on where any new challenges lie, give insight into where improvements have been made, and set out where firms are still not meeting the requirements of the regulator and what can be done to remediate such issues.
From July 2022 - June 2023, fscom carried out and finalised 60 AML Compliance Audits. The reviews were conducted across a range of financial services firms including Electronic Money Institutions (EMIs), Authorised Payment Institutions (APIs), Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs), Money
Transmission Businesses (MTBs), Virtual Currency Exchanges (VCEs), and Bureau de Changes (BDCs).
