OVG puts “SCOPE CDD On Demand” into use
We would like to congratulate OVG asset management from The Hague for putting the new service “SCOPE CDD On Demand” into use. With the help of this new service OVG asset management can very easily perform a compliance check within the framework of the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (Wwft) and Sanctions Act for both new and existing clients and store the result of this check in the client file. This compliance check consists of checking relationships and persons:
Whether this person or company is considered a politically exposed person (PEP)
Whether sanctions are or were in force against this person or company at any time
Whether this person or company is under the supervision of a financial regulatory authority
Whether there is negative publicity about this person or company
Whether your client is found in lists of law enforcement agencies
Whether this person has been declared incompetent as a director or whether a company has an incapacitated director
The end result of the check is recorded in a report which can be kept as part of the client file.
The advantages for OVG
‘The reason why OVG asset management chose the new “SCOPE CDD On Demand” service, is that it is a very low-threshold service that ensures that every asset manager can control his own customers and new customers himself in an efficient and simple way’, says Mr Wouter van Ganswijk, director of OVG asset management in The Hague. ‘From a compliance perspective, the execution of this can be monitored and periodically updated in a consistent manner. This offers OVG asset management more certainty and an additional external risk assessment of clients in a cost-effective way.’
