The Anti-Money Laundering Regime: A Practical Guide provides an objective, all-in-one resource summarising key concepts of the Act, explaining the risk-based approach taken by legislators and the supervisors, exploring in detail key concepts such as the application of the Act, the policies, procedures and controls needed to meet those risks and the key obligation to undertake the appropriate level of customer due diligence in various contexts, and the complex reporting obligations contained in the Act.
• A concise and practical guide to the Act.
