AML Accelerate was born through collaboration between two of the leading thought leaders in AML/CFT compliance programs, Arctic Intelligence and Initialism
Arctic Intelligence was founded in 2011. The founder spent over 20 years working with some of the world’s largest consulting firms, investment and retail banks and understand the challenges that these organisations face in managing these risks.
Arctic Intelligence was founded by passionate risk and compliance experts who understood, that even for those who could afford it, understanding your financial crime risk and how to mitigate it was overly cumbersome, expensive and many available solutions were not effective and difficult to implement.
Combining over 100 years of hands-on, practical experience our experts have developed practical end-to-end solutions for conducting risk assessments and compliance assurance monitoring.
The tools provide a framework for identifying, assessing, mitigating and managing risk.
Critically the tools provide tangible and actionable recommendations based on input to the tools.
Designed for different industries and company sizes each tool asks a series of expertly designed questions to assess the situation. The responses are then analysed to deliver practical recommendations to mitigate the risk or ensure compliance with industry regulations.
