As with most professions these days, we communicate on a regular basis via the wonders of modern technology with the ability to sit comfortably at our desk in the office or even whilst working from home.  However, nothing quite beats having those face to face meetings with your client, supplier, vendor etc, to secure that deal, manage a project on site, mitigate problems or to just say hello.  Unfortunately though, as we know only too well with recent tragic events in the forefront of our minds, travelling isn’t always as safe as we assume or hope it to be.

Twenty years ago, before RDR and MiFID, inducements were quite commonplace in the financial services industry.

So the banks are back to ticking boxes, I so hate this approach to fighting AML, it is not just lazy but ineffective not to say counterproductive, alienating clients and creating bad publicity. Are the banks unable to recognise a few simple facts? PEPs are not all similar: one size does not fit all. PEPs are not inherently bad, having a PEP client can add kudos to the bank. PEPs come in shades of grey (maybe not 50, but certainly not far off). Eliciting information without offending is a skill which can be taught.

Indeed their predecessor the Office of Fair Trading issued a whopping fine of £169,652 to Jackson Grundy an Estate Agency firm based in Northampton...
