AML/KYC & Compliance

UAE government has a strict policy against money laundering, and maintains a very strong anti-money laundering system through the enactment of two laws. These laws set forth guidelines stating that financial institutions should constantly scrutinize and be on the lookout for money laundering activity. These laws require banks, money exchange firms, finance companies, and any other financial institutions operating in the UAE to strictly follow KYC, or Know Your Customer guidelines. Further, it is mandatory for financial institutions to verify the customer’s identity and maintain transaction details (including name and address of initiator and beneficiary) for transactions over a limit as specified by the Government from time to time. Morison Menon’s employees are well versed with all government regulations in this regard, and help organizations ensure that they comply with all the requirements set forth by the Government.
