With AML regulators worldwide ramping up oversight in their jurisdictions, financial institutions are under growing pressures to develop and implement a robust and effective AML compliance programme that is consistent with industry leading practices and meet local regulatory expectations. 

Currently, three issues are having a significant impact on AML compliance developments within Chinese financial institutions:

  1. Implementation of the People’s Bank of China’s (PBOC) No.3 decree
  2. The Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) mutual evaluation programme
  3. Overseas regulatory developments

Financial institutions operating in the country need to keep pace and anticipate any regulatory changes in order to strategically develop an effective and sustainable AML compliance programme that is consistent with international standards.

As China’s regulatory landscape continues to evolve, financial institutions that act now and are proactively preparing themselves for the future will benefit the most.
