Birake Exchange AML Policy

Anti-Money Laundering Policy (AML Policy)

Money laundering is defined as the process where the identity of the proceeds of crime is so disguised that it gives an impression of legitimate income. Criminals specifically target financial services firms through which they attempt to launder criminal proceeds without the firms’ knowledge or suspicion.

Counter the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) Policy

The Company takes a risk-based approach when adopting and implementing counter financing of terrorism (CFT) measures and in conducting AML risk assessments.

The company adopted internal CFT controls and made undefended decisions regarding CFT matters supersedes any business, strategic or other operating task.

AML is tightly linked to Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements, which essentially involve verifying customers’ identities. KYC also requires financial institutions to monitor their users’ activity on an ongoing basis. Like AML, modern KYC procedures are heavily automated, and many institutions use the client onboarding process as an opportunity to acquire proper identification from new customers.
