Hear from our partners.

"Firms often struggle to get the AML discipline balance right - CDD can be under or overdone which can in some cases create additional unnecessary work for the firm and customer. 

I see a lot of value for mid- to large-sized firms to have something to guide them with requirements, particularly firms looking along the lines of or asking themselves if they should invest in a centralised team. 

A typical law firm that has a centralised team with one inbox into which all CDD documents are received and then filed away. Centralised teams often struggle with this workload. First AML’s platform helps the team understand what documents are required for each client and if there’s anything else they need to ask for. This is also useful where there may be differing levels of AML experience levels or confidence within the firm.

We like working with First AML because they’re transparent on what the product does. It's important to show the regulator you understand what your AML software is doing for you and the source of where the data is coming from."
