Published 20 January 2020
Category: Financial Regulation
The Danish FSA has announced that they are strengthening their supervisory activities within anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing by implementing a number of new measures:
- A joint risk score model, which will help the FSA assess which companies are in high risk of being misused for money-laundering or financing of terrorism, based on data reportable by the entities under supervision;
- An inspection manual to help heighten and uniform the quality of the inspection;
- A catalogue of supervisory methods which will be used to test supervisory activities other than inspections.
The new efforts aim at increasing the quality and efficiency of the Danish FSA’s supervision.
