KUALA LUMPUR: The authorities are facing new and increasing challenges following the increasing sophistication of financial tools and products in their fight against money laundering (ML), terrorism financing (TF) and proliferation financing (PF).
Bank Negara Malaysia Deputy Governor Marzunisham Omar said on Tuesday despite these challenges, the authorities remain vigilant in the fight against ML, TF and PF.
In his welcoming remarks at the 23rd Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG) Typologies Workshop, he shared four observations on the recent developments and challenges that are pertinent in strengthening AML/CFT/CPF measures.
“First, on the rapid changes of ML/TF/PF methods and risks that are driven by technology.
“As the shift towards digitalisation especially in the financial industry accelerates, the emerging risks presented are intensifying. The rapid change in technology sometimes result in AML/CFT/CPF measures undertaken by authorities to be reactive.
“For example, we see this in the virtual asset sector given its rapid development and widespread innovations,” he added.
Marzunisham said knowledge sharing platforms such as this workshop were useful to enhance their knowledge on the latest changes and trends in this space.
However, he also said it was crucial to continuously adopt new approaches and tools such as data analytics and artificial intelligence to elevate their surveillance and enforcement capability in keeping up with the increasingly complex and innovative financial instruments.
“Remaining reactive and defensive would limit our opportunity to proactively shape the orderly development of the financial landscape while managing any potential ML/TF/PF risks that accompany it,” he said.
As for the second observation, he said there should be greater scrutiny by both the domestic stakeholders and global community on AML/CFT/CPF measures and implementation.
He cited revelations of high-profile information such as Panama Papers, FINCEN leaks and more recently, the Pandora Papers, have attracted great interest within the domestic and international communities on the AML/CFT/CPF regime.
Marzunisham said this has led to higher expectations for authorities to take prompt action against activities involving cross-border flow of illicit funds as well as the broader ML/TF/PF threats.
“While efforts by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to enhance and provide greater clarity on related Standards, including on transparency of beneficial ownership is underway, authorities and gatekeepers are also expected to ensure that blind spots are effectively addressed.
“More often than not, the information regarding these illicit activities resides with multiple parties across the public and private sectors.
