Risk Based Approach

risk based approach compliance mechanisms
The Risk-Based Approach (RBA) is a methodology for prioritizing a company's activities based on an analysis of data to manage risks within a company's tolerance level. Implementing the RBA process helps identify potential high risks of money laundering and terrorist financing, allowing companies to focus resources and develop strategies to mitigate them.

The RBA is an overarching requirement since the 2012 FATF Recommendations for an effective implementation of all AML/CFT measures recommendations. The Belgian Financial Intelligence Unit has released various sector-based guidance reports for industry targeted risk-based approaches.

What is a Risk-Based Approach?

A risk-based approach to compliance is a strategy where businesses and organizations evaluate their potential for breaking laws, regulations, and policies and then prioritize their efforts to do so. In other words, it's a strategy that concentrates resources in areas with the greatest non-compliance risk.

The risk-based strategy entails locating and evaluating the risks connected to company ventures, goods, services, and client interactions. The complexity of the transaction, the type of consumer, and the location of the firm may all be considered during this evaluation. Controls and monitoring protocols are set up after hazards are discovered to manage and mitigate them.

What are the benefits of implementing a Risk-Based Approach?

The RBA process allows you to identify potential high risks of money laundering and terrorist financing so to focus and develop strategies to mitigate them.

The underlying principle of the RBA is to focus the means (your resources) where they are most needed (your needs) to manage risks within your tolerance level.
