More on monitoring

Red flags for schools.

The First AML platform will significantly help, but also look out for:

  • Are the parents foreign nationals, or resident in, a high-risk country?
  • Are fee payments or donations unusually large or frequent?
  • Do school fee payments or donations involve complex entities or illogical transaction chains?
  • Does the parent’s assets seem inconsistent / unusual given their known legitimate income?
  • Is the parent behaving unusually?
  • Does the parent hold a prominent public job or function?
