Orientation and Strategic Fields of Action for Sustainable Success


Understanding Relevance

Money laundering is a global problem. This is the process in which criminals attempt to disguise illegally acquired money so that it appears to be legally acquired money.

The exchange of information between authorities and companies is crucial for detecting money laundering cases. It is therefore essential for companies to implement measures to identify suspicious transactions and business partners.

Companies that do not comply with money laundering prevention regulations expose themselves to high fines and other sanctions.

Knowing the Regulatory Framework

Criminal methods of money laundering and the countermeasures to them are constantly changing. This means continuous adjustments to the regulatory framework for companies.

The regulatory framework is made up of various laws, regulations and guidelines. These require companies to take specific money laundering prevention measures, such as identifying business partners or reporting suspected cases.

Using Information and Communication Systems

Through information and communication systems, companies can identify their customers and business partners, monitor transactions and report suspected cases.

Knowing Customers

Compliance with KYC requirements (KYC = Know Your Customer) plays a central role in money laundering prevention. These systems ensure that customers and business partners are correctly identified and continuously checked to prevent money laundering activities.

Investigating Financial Transactions

Many European countries have national financial information units (FIUs) tasked with combating money laundering and terrorist financing.

These financial information units use advanced information systems to identify money laundering -Activities. The main tasks are the collection of suspicious activity reports and the analysis of transaction data, often in cooperation with other domestic and foreign authorities.

Provisioning Whistleblower Systems

Whistleblower systems allow employees to anonymously raise concerns about money laundering activities within the company without fear of reprisal. These systems protect the identity of reporters using modern security measures and encryption techniques.

Meeting Compliance Requirements

Compliance with money laundering prevention regulations is a continuous process that requires regular reviews and adjustments.

The main tasks in the area of compliance include training employees, conducting internal audits and proactive risk management. Companies that consistently meet their compliance requirements protect themselves from financial losses, reputational risks and legal consequences.
