Fintechs and digital-first financial service businesses have benefited from increased investment and customer growth in recent years. However, operating a regulated business brings great responsibility and when it comes to financial crime, the key elements of success are knowing your obligations and truly understanding your risks. Building a robust AML/CFT structure can feel like a hurdle when you need to be focussing on scaling and building your USPs. It is also important to remember that although perfection is not possible and it is easy for businesses to fall into a ‘tick-box’ approach that focuses on doing ‘just enough’ to meet legal and regulatory requirements, more needs to be done.
