The International Standards on Combating Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism and Proliferation is also known as the ‘FATF Recommendations’. RBML, is shifting the focus of AML management from judgmental post-analysis to proactive management. Risk Management is the concept which is central to the effective AML control.

Risk Based Money Laundering

The FATF Recommendations require the risk-based approach to be applied on several levels. Firstly, countries should develop a national risk assessment structure to combat money laundering and terrorist financing risks in the jurisdiction. Secondly at the financial institution level. Previously, financial institutions were not serious about collecting information about their customers. They collected information about customers such as credit rating, business operations and money management etc. but these customers only accounted for a small fraction of their clients.

In-spite of this, Supervisory authorities imposed heavy penalties on financial institutions for the failure to deal with the identified risk. This vulnerability to deal with money laundering, however lead to identification of level of risk for all the customers. Banks started identifying the high risk customers. Hence, this course emphasize more on the high risk customers.
