  • Failing to identify whether a customer was at risk of experiencing harm by not considering whether the amount being deposited or lost was appropriate.

  • Not fulfilling elements of customer due diligence as early as intended in accordance with its own risk-based approach.
  • Not having sufficient AML analysts to process the volumes of data or undertake the AML account reviews in accordance with its procedures.
