The fight against financial crime must be carefully planned and
co ordinated as there are often links between fraud and money laundering. Our monitoring systems are therefore able to target a wide range of suspicious transactions. But to ensure that we align our work with industry best practice and the ever changing expectations of our regulators, we have a clearly defined governance structure. Its focal point is our Group Financial Crime Risk Committee, which meets on a quarterly basis and is chaired by the Director, Property, Research and Assurance.

The Committee sets our overall strategy to combat financial crime informed by its assessment of emerging risks and changing regulatory requirements. Progress against the strategy is reviewed through a functional, business and geographic lens.
