publish Risk Outlook for Spring 2015


A key area of concern remains Anti-Money Laundering Procedures

The SRA are now well into their assessment of a number of firms who are subject to the auditing of their current AML processes. They are aiming to visit 500 firms and their activity has been driven by an increase in reports concerning AML compliance - a handful of cases the likes of which they have not been seen before - combined with pressure from law enforcement agencies.


Steve Wilmott, Director of Intelligence and Investigation at the SRA, said that they will be looking at systems and procedures, record keeping, training and the activity of the MRLO at the firm.


When your firm is audited how confident would you be of passing their inspection?

Within the update, the regulator states that they have seen recent cases where ‘poor systems and controls have been a factor in the misuse of money or assets’, citing that the root of the problem lies in inadequacies in training and supervision, as well as failure to control access to accounts.
