KYC or Know Your Customer is the process of a business verifying the identity of its clients and assessing their suitability, along with the potential risks towards the business relationship.
AML or Anti-money Laundering are legal controls that require financial institutions and other regulated entities to prevent, detect, and report money laundering activities.
There are three types of laundering that we try to prevent with our control system:
- For a criminal: money laundering is the process by which the proceeds of criminal activity are made to appear legitimate;
- For the terrorist: money laundering is the process by which money used to fund terrorist activity without revealing its true source, destination or purpose;
- For the tax evader: money laundering is the process of spending money without leaving a trail showing who owns it.
