  • The JFSC require all supervised persons to review the feedback and consider what enhancements to systems and controls might be required.

  • Also, In December 2022 the JFSC advised it would be issuing a video covering the key parts of its feedback for the AML Business Risk Assessment and Strategy thematic.
  • This will now be covered along with our MLCO feedback in one video.
  • The JFSC invite you to submit any questions or feedback you might have on the MLCO thematic feedback to by 25 May 2023, so they can be answered as part of the recording.
