AML Policies

AML Policies

The MKS PAMP GROUP AML policy and procedures are applied by all Group companies and are designed to detect and mitigate money laundering and terrorist financing risks. This policy is implemented through a comprehensive management system that encompasses rigorous risk-based due diligence procedures before entering into new commercial relationships as well as continuous monitoring of transactions on a risk-based approach. Should we suspect that the funds or the precious metals are the proceeds of a criminal activity or are related to terrorist financing we would immediately put the relationship on hold and report our suspicions to the local financial intelligence unit (FIU).

Our group companies located in Switzerland, MKS (Switzerland) SA and PAMP SA, are regulated by the FINMA for their compliance with the Swiss Anti Money Laundering Act. An independent audit is performed annually by a Big Four firm in order to verify our compliance with the Swiss AML Act.
 
The group has set an unambiguous policy against corruption within its Code of Conduct. All group companies comply with all applicable local and international laws. In particular, MKS (Switzerland) SA and PAMP SA fully comply with Swiss laws that prohibit active and passive corruption both in Switzerland and abroad.
