Compliance

We assist clients around the world with financial crimes risk management—and help commercial and retail banks, investment banks, financial services firms, and FinTech companies and other non-financial obliged entities to face the challenge of complying with international financial crime regulations, through both proactive and reactive measures. K2 Integrity’s multilingual, multidisciplinary regulatory, compliance, and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) professionals have experience with international standards, leading industry practices, and country-specific requirements across 100 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), including those 28 countries following EU directives, as well as with U.S. crime prevention rules such as those promulgated by the USA PATRIOT Act, the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

We are a globally trusted organization dedicated to designing and implementing best-in-class strategies, policies, and controls to protect against the full range of illicit financing threats. Chip Poncy, Global Co-Head of Financial Crimes Risk and Compliance

We work closely with financial entities operating internationally in highly regulated, complex industries to evaluate their compliance frameworks in order to build, maintain, and mature their AML, combating the financing of terrorism (CFT), anti-bribery and corruption (ABC), risk management, and regulatory compliance programs. Our investigative DNA allows us to leverage decades of experience in concert with cutting-edge technology to provide clients with the specific relevant knowledge needed to mitigate reputational and regulatory risk.

In the age of evolving regulatory frameworks, it is critical for an organization to have a 360-degree, global view of its compliance practices. To this end, we offer clients an extensive dedicated support team to assist not only in the identification of issues but also with the ongoing resolution and implementation of robust compliance and AML programs, helping them develop sustainable, cost-effective solutions. We guide our clients’ responses to regulatory investigations and communications with regulators, and design remediation of identified compliance gaps. Our seasoned professionals have the grounding in best practices to assess, review, enhance, test, and validate our clients’ compliance programs and mitigate the risk to their businesses and reputations.

With deep experience in the global and U.S. policy, enforcement, and regulatory fields, we architect novel strategies, structures, and solutions for emerging risks and financial integrity challenges and often assist jurisdictional authorities, institutional leadership, boardrooms, and senior executive management in developing or refining economic, financial, business, and risk management strategies to strengthen their systems and capabilities against a complex range of illicit financing and sanctions risks.
