Anti-money laundering services

The first phase of New Zealand’s new anti-money laundering regime comes into force on 30 June 2013.  By that time, reporting entities will need to have complied with the requirements of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT Act). The new regime will have a significant impact on a wide range of entities including banks, finance companies, non-bank deposit takers and many other businesses.

Reporting entities will have a number of steps to complete. This will involve having policies and procedures in place, including a risk assessment and an AML/CFT programme, all by 30 June 2013.

We have an anti-money laundering team led from our Forensic Services practice, to help clients comply with their obligations. Our AML experience is drawn from more than a decade of providing risk-assessment, compliance programme design, development, training, implementation, monitoring and independent testing for AML programmes within financial services organisations worldwide.
