AML & Fight Against Corruption

Aside its relevance in terms of Governance, adopting an effective compliance system is crucial to prevent money laundering and a regulatory requirement for most undertakings. Failure to meet this requirement may entail misdemeanor and criminal liability. 

The restrictive measures approved by the UN or the EU and the relevant penalty regime – with the creation of a crime of violation of restrictive measures and the establishment of a penalty of nullity of all acts performed in violation of such measures – pose demanding challenges to managers, who have to ensure that the rules are known and complied with across the organization. 

On top of the anti-corruption and related offenses’ requirements arising from the transnational application of foreign anti-corruption laws, business stakeholders, including investors, are demanding good anti-corruption practices in the context of "ESG analyses".
