AML/CFT Introduction

Anti-Money Laundering / Countering Financing of Terrorism

Our AML/CFT services

We provide expert advice and advocacy across AML/CFT and associated compliance areas covering all affected sectors.

Robinson Legal guides clients through the Risk Assessment process, creates and remediates Compliance Programmes and associated systems, undertakes internal reviews and independent audits, trains Compliance Officers, senior managers and AML/CFT-related staff, and advises and advocates for clients with their regulators.

Marty Robinson has a deep and practical understanding of the AML/CFT Act, its legislative instruments and the associated Supervisory and international guidance, and maintains strong relationships with the Supervisors. He has written extensively on AML/CFT.

We provide robust, practical advice to minimise disruption while maximising demonstrable compliance. We love to advocate for clients wherever it's necessary or advantageous.

Our work frequently involves:

  • Opting out of IVCOP, drafting opt-out notifications
  • Remediating External Audit or Supervisor recommendations
  • Customer due diligence and account/transaction monitoring processes
  • Complex enhanced CDD verification requirements
  • Applying for/complying with Ministerial and regulatory exemptions (financial advisers, superannuation and workplace savings schemes, specified/managing intermediaries)
  • Whether to file a SAR in a specific case – what to include and redact
  • Associated governance, risk & compliance
  • Emerging Regtech solutions
  • General trouble-shooting

Robust, practical advice with minimal disruption.

Maximise demonstrable compliance to your statutory Supervisor with our help. We love to advocate for our clients wherever necessary or advantageous.
