PUBLICATIONS

As part of my on-going examination of the important issues and developments in money laundering and financial crime, I write articles, books and other discussion documents on a regular basis - and also now appear on the (very small) silver screen.

Anti-Money Laundering:

What You Need to Know

This book is written for staff working in firms covered by AML requirements, which place requirements on such firms to put in place policies and procedures to prevent and forestall money laundering and terrorist financing.  This concise book covers the central tenets of the AML regime - customer due diligence, record- keeping, reporting and staff training - for staff working in the jurisdiction and sector specified by each edition.  Each edition also contains an outline of the relevant legislation, sector-specific case studies and red flags, and links to further information.

Money Laundering

Officer's Practical

Handbook: New 2017

Regulations

The Money Laundering Officer's Practical Handbook (or MLOPH) was first published in 2006 with the strap- line "Don't tell me what I need to know, tell me what I need to do!", and the intention has been to create as practical a guide as possible.  MLOPH features lots of bullet points and checklists, and even has removable, photocopiable resources at the back.  If you are an experienced UK MLRO, you can use MLOPH to check that your AML regime is still compliant and effective; if you are a newly-appointed MLRO, MLOPH will give you step-by- step guidance on how to implement such a regime.

Money Laundering

Bulletin

I write a monthly article for leading trade paper Money Laundering Bulletin, where I look at the AML regimes operating in various jurisdictions and also offer practical advice to MLROs on how to make their lives easier (short of resigning, of course).

Suspicious Activity: The

Adventures of an MLRO

Edward Jones is a Money Laundering Reporting Officer at Radleys Bank. In common with other MLROs, he has to balance legal requirements, recalcitrant colleagues and sniffy customers.  He first appeared in the pages of Money Laundering Bulletin, and is now being published as a serialised e-book on the Kindle platform.  (Free software from Amazon  can be downloaded to enable iPads, iPods, Windows PCs and Macs to download and read Kindle e-books.)

Anti-Money Laundering:

A Guide for the Non-

Executive Director

This book is written for non-executive directors of firms covered by AML requirements, which place requirements on such firms to put in place policies and procedures to prevent and forestall money laundering and terrorist financing - and hold the directors of those firms responsible for ensuring that this is done.  It is essential that every director - whether executive or non-executive - is aware of the heightened requirements of the AML/CFT regime of his regime, and his responsibilities under it.  This concise book gives him that information.
