Hong Kong AML Update

Hong Kong is widely regarded as having one of the most robust regulatory AML frameworks globally. In 2019, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the inter-governmental agency which sets international standards for AML compliance and evaluates financial regulators on their compliance with those standards, assessed Hong Kong's regime to be fully compliant with FATF and effective overall, making Hong Kong the first financial centre in Asia Pacific to receive this recognition in FATF's latest round of evaluation.
