September 2019, five Dutch banks decided to incorporate a new institute operating under the name “Transaction Monitoring Netherlands”. The joining Banks are ABN AMRO, ING, Rabobank, Triodos Bank and the Volksbank. They will step up their efforts to battle money laundering by monitoring all payment transactions. The five banks alone cover at least 27 million transactions per day. Raemonda, a software solution for Trust Companies, provides for an enhanced transaction monitoring module.
DNB: COMPLIANCE FUNCTION LESS EFFECTIVE DUE TO MISSING OR INCOMPLETE REPORTS
The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) announced this month that the compliance reports from Trust Offices are often deficient or even lacking. This detracts from the effectiveness of the compliance function.
During investigations, DNB has found that compliance reports are missing or contain mainly numerical information. DNB is of the opinion that this affects or can affect the effectiveness of the compliance function. The compliance software of Compliance Innovations, Raemonda, provides for automated reporting for trust offices compliant to WTT or WWFT. For further reading, visit the news section at www.dnb.nl
