Analysis of group and internal procedure.

Analyze processes for identifying and verifying the identity of customers, including establishing remote business relationships.

Analyze processes for identifying real beneficiaries.

Analysis of processes for identifying politically exposed persons.

Analysis of the procedure for reporting transactions to the GIIF.

    Therefore, we conduct a post-implementation review of internal regulations primarily based on the documentation provided and information obtained from the project team of the Institution under review.
