SMI Markets does not tolerate money laundering and supports the fight against money launderers. SMI Markets follows the guidelines set by MONEYVAL (Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures). MONEYVAL is a permanent monitoring mechanism of the Council of Europe, a pan-European organisation with 47 member states, reporting directly to its principal organ, the Committee of Ministers. MONEYVAL is entrusted with the task of assessing compliance with the principal international standards to counter money laundering and the financing of terrorism and the effectiveness of their implementation, as well as with the task of making recommendations to national authorities in respect of necessary improvements to their systems. MONEYVAL also conducts thematic typologies research of money laundering and terrorist financing methods, trends and techniques. MONEYVAL was originally an observer to the FATF and from June 2006 became an associate member.
SMI Markets now has policies in place to deter people from laundering money. These policies include:
Ensuring clients have valid proof of identification
Maintaining records of identification information
Determining that clients are not known or suspected terrorists by checking their names against lists of known or suspected terrorists
Informing clients that the information they provide may be used to verify their identity
Closely following clients money transactions
Not accepting cash, money orders, third-party transactions, exchange houses transfers or the Western Union transfers.Money laundering occurs when funds from an illegal/criminal activity are moved through the financial system in such a way as to make it appear that the funds have come from legitimate sources.
Money Laundering usually follows three stages:
Firstly, cash or cash equivalents are placed into the financial system. Secondly, money is transferred or moved to other accounts (e.g. futures accounts) through a series of financial transactions designed to obscure the origin of the money (e.g. executing trades with little or no financial risk or transferring account balances to other accounts). And finally, the funds are re-introduced into the economy so that the funds appear to have come from legitimate sources (e.g. closing a futures account and transferring the funds to a bank account).
Trading accounts are one vehicle that can be used to launder illicit funds or to hide the true owner of the funds. In particular, a trading account can be used to execute financial transactions that help obscure the origins of the funds.SMI Markets directs funds withdrawals back to the original source of remittance, as a preventative measure. International Anti-Money Laundering requires financial services institutions to be aware of potential money laundering abuses that could occur in a customer account and implement a compliance program to deter, detect and report potentially suspicious activity. These guidelines have been implemented to protect SMI Markets and its clients. For questions/comments regarding these guidelines, please contact us at email@example.com.
