The Bank has implemented security procedures and policies for all of its locations. Each new branch is subject to oversight by the Bank’s head office to ensure compliance with the Bank’s procedures and policies. The Bank’s staff receive appropriate anti-money laundering training regularly.
The Bank maintains an anti-money laundering policy in relation to all of its customers. It has a Control Compliance Service which is responsible for the prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism. This Service monitors and analyses accounts and transactions of customers, investigates unusual and suspicious transactions and establishes compliance procedures for all internal standards and external bank regulation. The Bank has also recently introduced programmes for customer identification and examination of customers’ data upon the opening of a new account.
