For the month of January, we’ve explored the three new areas that financial institutions need to look into to comply with Bank Negara Malaysia’s new policies, which are:
- The Fit & Proper Criteria
- The Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Framework
- Employee Screening Exposure
A major challenge for financial institutions this year is to adopt processes that will help ensure compliance – for the long term. For the most part, a company’s integrity is strongly influenced by its staff, thus, ensuring that you have the right personnel is key.
Be it a CEO or a junior executive, screening before employment, as well as during employment will greatly aid in weeding out problematic employees and to address problems that may arise due to an employee’s financial or personal situation. Some organisations may decide to help its employees once they have identified the problems they are dealing with, thereby, creating a culture that is built on trust. A corporate culture built on trust and the willingness to assist employees would greatly boost the morale of the organisation.
