Expert opinion

Our AML and CTF specialists were engaged to provide a joint expert opinion related to a significant Australian Reporting Entities AML and CTF Compliance Program. We conducted a technical assessment, interviews and examinations.

Our findings were then provided in an expert report and tested under extensive cross examination by Senior Counsel. We were subsequently requested to provide an updated expert opinion, based on improvements made to the client’s AML and CTF Risk Assessment and Program.
