OSTC Foreign Exchange has implemented an anti-money laundering (AML) policy that is designed to comply with required HMRC anti-money laundering rules as a minimum standard as well as with all laws, regulations, and guidance relating to the prevention of money laundering, terrorist financing, and related financial crimes
- As part of its anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist compliance structure, OSTC Foreign Exchange takes steps to ensure that it complies with all embargo regulations applicable globally. As a result OSTC FX maintains lists that are compiled on the basis of multiple sources, including the HM Treasury Asset Freezing Unit, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
