In these areas, our team provides advice for our clients' Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CTF) systems, including the provision of suitably qualified and experienced individuals to act as AML Officers of Cayman Islands financial Services providers in compliance with their obligations under the AML Regulations.

Ogier Global is also well versed in cross-border reporting regulations and can assist clients with their Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) reporting, including FATCA and CRS, thereby allowing clients to focus on their core business activities.

AML audits

Ogier Global can offer independent AML audits to clients where we are not involved in the execution of its AML processes and controls. The service reviews AML policies, business risk assessments, training, record retention, sanction screening and sample CDD testing evaluating compliance with Cayman's AML Framework. We offer AML audits across industries including investment management companies, Cayman investment vehicles and property developer and real estate companies. Ogier Global has knowledgeable, qualified and experienced professionals across our global footprint who are ready to help you be compliant.

AML officers

To help our clients meet their obligations under the AML Regulations, Ogier Global can offer our clients qualified, experienced and highly responsive individuals to act as AML Officers (AMLCO, MLRO and Deputy MLRO). Our AML officers focus on providing the highest level of personal service, working collaboratively with clients and Ogier's cross-jurisdictional legal and administration teams to add real value to your business.

AML training

Cayman Islands financial institutions are required to ensure that their staff and senior management receive proper training on the AML, CFT and PF risk facing their business. Ogier Global can deliver tailored AML training to ensure full regulatory compliance of operations. Get in touch with our team to find out more.

Our responsive and experienced team of compliance specialists, chartered company secretaries and administrators deliver quick and efficient services including:

  • Undertaking client due diligence in accordance with the AML Regime of the Cayman Islands
