AML/CFT is activity designed to manage and/or mitigate the risk that legitimate businesses are being used to launder money or fund terrorism.

I really enjoyed the day and was very impressed by your product. I walked away with a better appreciation of the AML risk factors in our business and how they can be mitigated.
Workshop done – Program Manual V1 drafted! So pleased to work alongside Initialism to get our AML program underway – the workshop was well worthwhile. We learnt plenty around the purpose of the AML legislation and then completed our Risk Assessment and draft program manual. Initialism were very knowledgeable on AML and practical in their approach. The Initialism portal is user friendly and easy to tailor to our firm’s needs and will definitely future proof our program. Thank you.
