HKMA AML Overview
On 1 March 2018, The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) will enact the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (Amendment) Bill 2017.
This requires covered financial institutions to comply with statutory customer due diligence (CDD) and record-keeping requirements for the HKMA register of relevant individuals .
The aim of these enhancements is to bring Hong Kong’s regulatory regime in line with FATF recommendations and to safeguard the integrity of Hong Kong as a global financial centre.
Robust Approach Required to Comply with HKMA AML
HKMA AML compliance puts increased focus and pressure on customer due diligence (CDD) and KYC processes for financial institutions, adding significantly to the overall cost of compliance, potentially increasing the time to revenue for most banks and impacting the client experience.
Both domestic and foreign banks must stay compliant with Hong Kong regulations or face severe financial and reputational penalties.
