Anti Money Laundering
Anti-Money Laundering Policy
Hyde Harrington is committed to being fully compliant with the provisions of the Anti-Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing & Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) regulations 2017.
To ensure compliance with the law and to ensure we know and fully understand the identity and structures of our clients we have robust anti-money laundering policies and procedures in place.
Client & Due Diligence
We conduct due diligence enquiries on all new clients to establish and verify our client’s identity and the identity of any beneficial owners. We may also undertake such enquiries on anyone instructing us on behalf of, but who may not be our clients. We cannot act if sufficient information is not provided.
We require sight of original documentation as part of this due diligence process. We also undertake risk assessments for all new matters for existing clients.
We undertake on-going monitoring of all existing clients (which may require you to provide us with updated proof of identity documentation).
We must report to the National Crime Agency any suspicion or knowledge regarding money laundering or the proceeds of crime. We are not permitted to notify you of the fact that such reports have been made.
Our duties to report to the National Crime Agency may take priority over any duty to keep your information and detail of your transactions confidential.
