Additionally they will ensure they effectively manage Money Laundering, Counter Terrorist Financing, Fraud and reputational Risk
  • This will be achieved by ensuring all actions take account of the likelihood of operational risk occurring; additionally by addressing any areas of concern in conjunction with line management and/or the appropriate department.
