Good governance is central to our business.
Good governance is essential for the protection of our clients and staff, as well as for the success of our organisation. Governments all across the world have highlighted money laundering as a major problem, as has the illicit financing of criminality and terrorism. Financial crime and tax evasion, on the other hand, destabilise international financial institutions and skew markets.
We have a strong system of internal controls and risk management processes in place at WolfCFD.com, including pre-trade and post-trade fraud detection systems. Our highly qualified global compliance teams ensure that we follow all applicable laws to protect our customers and aid in the fight against money laundering and terrorism funding.
Specifically, at WolfCFD.com we:
To check our compliance with internal controls, risk management systems, and applicable requirements, we use self-assessment methods. Senior management and the Board of Directors analyse the outcomes of the self-assessments on a regular basis.
We understand the necessity of continuing education and training in order to stay current with regulatory standards and best practises. Our employees participate in a variety of training programmes linked to their jobs, such as governance and risk management techniques, as well as anti-money laundering.
Additionally, we ensure that personnel who are responsible for executing and managing financial transactions receive rigorous anti-money laundering and compliance training as part of their induction process. Employees with fiduciary responsibilities must also take an annual anti-money laundering refresher course.
Employees should be certified by organisations such as the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) and the International Compliance Association.
We do not receive third party deposits nor make third party withdrawals. All deposits are, where possible, returned to source to prevent facilitating the “layering” of fraudulent proceeds.
In addition, we use cutting-edge document authentication technology and computerised databases to reduce the danger of identity fraud, including cases of stolen identities and the use of counterfeit documents. To authenticate a client’s identity, we shall use electronic identification methods using publicly available databases, conduct biometric checks, and/or request “selfie certs” or video calls.
We also update our client files on a regular basis with specifics of their financial backgrounds and do checks for individuals who may be sanctioned, politically exposed, or carrying negative media.
Finally, we hire an independent auditor from one of the “big four” accounting and auditing firms every year to assess the company’s internal controls, risk management, and governance systems, as well as their level of compliance with applicable rules and regulations. In addition, we conduct annual audits to ensure that our systems and procedures are sound and compliant with industry standards and best practises.
