AML and KYC Policies
Anti-Money Laundering (AML)
The Binapex AML Policy is designed to prevent money laundering by meeting the local AML legislation obligations including the need to have adequate systems and controls in place to reduce the risk of the company being used to facilitate financial crime.

- Establishing and maintaining risk based systems and procedures to monitor on-going customer activity.
- Procedures for reporting suspicious activity internally and to the relevant law enforcement authorities as appropriate.
- The maintenance of appropriate records for the minimum prescribed periods.
- Training and awareness for all relevant employees.
