What makes us different
We used to be assessors. Our primary edge over other consultancy firms derives from the fact that FTA’s partners worked for a considerable number of years within international organizations (IMF, MONEYVAL) that form part of the FATF Global Network, and conducted numerous evaluations against the FATF Standards. We not only have an in-depth knowledge of the FATF Standards and the evaluation process but are also very familiar with the decision-making process of the FATF community, as a result of having actively and directly participated for many years in the discussion and adoption of mutual evaluation reports and other policy issues in the context of FATF and MONEYVAL Plenaries. We are, therefore, exceptionally well-placed to train and advise countries hands-on from a strategic perspective and have successfully guided many countries around the world through their evaluation process.
Our agile team of experts comprises lawyers, law enforcement professionals, financial and non-financial supervisors, and forensic accountants.
While working in the field, on many occasions we have identified misconceptions and lack of clarity on what needed to be done and how.
By virtue of our years of experience, we truly understand the international standards of the FATF and help our clients to better understand how to effectively apply them on an operational level.
We know how to design, develop, and implement national AML/CFT frameworks and institutional components.
Through our insider knowledge we make the process fair and efficient, as our drive is to ensure that countries can present their systems in the best possible manner.
We provide cutting-edge, tailor-made solutions to governments and national authorities.
The most valuable feedback is that from our clients and partners. Public recognition is proof that our approach and our customized implementations can also be perceived as effective and impactful from the outside.
