OpenMarkets was investigating a business opportunity with a commercial supplier.  The opportunity had a “Know Your Customer”  element to it.   To ensure that the opportunity was taken we engaged Paddy Oliver to assist us carry out a KYC Gap Analysis.  The results of the KYC Gap Analysis allows us to satisfy the supplier’s requirements, improve our KYC processes, and ensure that we meet our KYC obligations under the AML/CTF Act.

Working with Paddy helped me to learn more about how our AML/CTF Compliance Framework should operate, and about AML/CTF obligations in general.    Paddy’s advice was pragmatic and tailored towards our business needs.  Also, all the work was carried out on time and on budget under a fixed price contract.

If you require assistance with your AML/CTF Program do not hesitate to contact Paddy.
