This session will give an overview of what to expect from the upcoming MONEYVAL assessment of Guernsey’s AML and CFT controls. Delegates will hear how they can maintain a demonstrable regulatory focus, what issues are likely to gain greater regulatory scrutiny and what licensees and relevant officers can be doing to ensure they are prepared.
This session will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to MONEYVAL
- 2016 assessment of the Bailiwick
- Enforcement Activity
- Financial Crime Offences
- Where to expect scrutiny
- Regulatory issues that are likely to gain greater focus
In January 2016 MONEYVAL issued an assessment of the Bailiwick’s AML and CFT controls. The report concluded that the jurisdiction had made major progress against evolving regulatory standards and was “largely compliant” with international money laundering guidelines. This was tempered by the suggestion that “the relatively limited number of cases involving third party [money laundering] by participants of the financial industry and the amounts of property laundered and confiscated… indicates room for more effective application of [money laundering] provisions.”
MONEYVAL are due to return to Guernsey in 2022/23 and will expect progress to have been made in relation to the demonstration of regulatory compliance. Delegates attending this training will be appraised of the likely areas of scrutiny and regulatory issues expected to gather focus beyond this key assessment of Guernsey’s global regulatory standing.
In the event that the MONEYVAL inspection of Guernsey is pushed back significantly we reserve the right to change the topic of this session for something more appropriate and relevant.
