UK AML REGULATORY ROUND-UP

On 12th March, Herbert Smith Freehills published the latest edition of this newsletter which said that late 2018 and early 2019 saw a flurry of regulatory developments and proposals relating to AML.  The briefing discusses many of these developments and proposals, including –

  • the FCA’s thematic review on money laundering risks in the e-money sector;
  • amendments to compliance requirements in respect of anonymous safety deposit boxes;
  • the FATF’s Mutual Evaluation Review of the UK;
  • reform of the UK Suspicious Activity Reporting regime; and
  • a recent RUSI paper on the scale of money laundering in the UK.
