Hong Kong: Vistra Subscribes To HKICS AML/CFT Charter
Last Updated: 25 May 2016

Vistra Hong Kong has become a founding subscriber to the Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (HKICS) Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (AML/CFT) Charter after demonstrating that it is able to meet HKICS's required standards under the HKICS accreditation programme.

A signing ceremony was held on 17 May 2016 where Vistra and five other leading Hong Kong and international CSPs subscribed to the Charter.

The programme involves an independent test of controls of ML/FT (Money Laundering/Financing of Terrorism) risk, assessment procedures and Know Your Client obligations.

HKICS also issued a "Guideline" to set standards converging to those for financial institutions which all corporate service providers (CSPs) may adopt in their AML/CFT fight.
