FCA FINES COMMERZBANK LONDON £37,805,400 OVER AML FAILURES

On 17 June, various media reported that the FCA has fined Commerzbank AG (London Branch) £37,805,400 for failing to put adequate AML systems and controls in place between October 2012 and September 2017. It is said that Commerzbank London was aware of these weaknesses and failed to take reasonable and effective steps to fix them, despite the FCA raising specific concerns about them in 2012, 2015 and 2017.
