In recent years, more cases related to money laundering have come to light, not just around the globe but also in the Maltese islands. 

To address the issue of money laundering – a process how money that is obtained illegally, changes its form or moves to other places where it will not attract attention from authorities, to make it legitimate – EU AML directives are in place. These are aimed at improving consistency of anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing rules across all EU member states. 

In this respect, it is important that banks, financial institutions, and other entities working in real-estate services, financial services, sale of luxury goods, notaries, and others observe the measures that are in place to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. 

At Fairwinds Management Limited, we can assist you in various ways related to anti-money laundering. Our team with experience in this sector can help you, to not only understand what AML is but also the challenges that come with it, solutions to it and eventually, results.
