AML/KYC Policy

Anti Money Laundering (AML) and
Know Your Customer (KYC) Policy

Anti Money laundering (AML) policy

Money laundering is the practice of turning funds obtained from illicit acts such as fraud, corruption, terrorism, etc.) into other assets or transactions that are lawful to hide or misrepresent the real sources of such assets.

To order to counter the introduction of funds from illegal enterprises into the economy and to prevent terrorism attacks, governments are involved in the fight against funds laundering.

Due to the transparency and usability of financial markets and the free flow of resources within them, financial institutions may be one means of enabling illegal income. As a result, Soccerquote uses rules and legislation to tackle money laundering and terrorism funding.
