Anti-money laundering information for prospective clients
In the United Kingdom, and the other jurisdictions in which we operate, laws and regulations are designed to combat money laundering. Broadly, money laundering can arise if a person acquires, retains, transfers uses or controls the proceeds of a crime for the benefit of a criminal activity. References to money laundering include references to terrorism.
In order to fulfil our obligations we are obliged to verify the identity of new clients, and in certain circumstances existing clients. In addition, our internal requirements from time to time may require that we conduct background checks on new or existing clients. These may necessitate verification procedures of the identity and good standing of clients, one or more of their directors or employees or other representatives. This includes the identity of clients’ or potential clients’ shareholders, beneficial owners, management, directors or officers and/or other relevant information. This may possibly include evidence of source of funds, at the outset of and possibly from time to time throughout our relationship with clients, which we may request and/or obtain from third-party sources. The sources for such verification may comprise documentation which we request from the prospective client or through the use of online sources or both.
In some circumstances, we may decline to, or may not be permitted to, proceed to act until such procedures have been completed. In other circumstances, we may agree to commence acting whilst these procedures are carried out. We reserve the right to decline to act or, if appropriate, cease to act should these procedures not be completed to our satisfaction. We may also be required to make detailed enquiries of any unusual transactions such as the transfer of large amounts of cash.
Where we instruct counsel or other professionals on behalf of clients they may request us to provide them with copies of evidence of the identity of clients or their representatives which we have obtained from you or from other sources. We will be entitled to send such copies to them if we so decide unless the client specifically advises us not to do so.
