What does the rise in hybrid working mean for AML compliance?

For many years now, electronic verification (EV) has been seen as the most reliable and robust way of completing AML checks, with regulators across the world pushing firms to use it as a preferred solution.

And now, as a result of the pandemic, not only is EV the most reliable option, but it is also the only viable one.

Unlike manual checks, which are time consuming and open to error, electronic verification is quick, secure and reliable, offering a consistent approach to AML procedures.
