An ounce of prevention is worth more than a ton of cure.

By planning in advanced for the impact of a money laundering, financial fraud or terrorist financing event, a financial institution can save millions in both direct and indirect costs.

Constructing potential scenarios of financial crime events, accompanied by direct action plans and official responses to enquiries from stakeholders, the guide is customised to the specific business needs of each client.

For international financial institutions, the discovery of a money laundering, terrorist financing, financial fraud or corruption event can rattle management and confuse employees. In an era of multi-billion dollar penalties, a firm’s immediate response to such an event can dictate success or failure. When a financial institution is implicated in a critical incident, regulators demand firm answers and nervous shareholders will expect a well-prepared management team. The depth of the associated direct and indirect costs are related to the financial institution’s advanced preparations and planning. Timing becomes critical. Accurate facts can be difficult to determine. Uncoordinated responses by dispersed employees can incur devastating consequences. ManchesterCF collaborates with financial institutions to produce a Critical Incident Response Guide customised to the client’s specific business lines, customer base and other unique characteristics. Each customer solution is unique, as no two financial instititions are exactly alike. From the planning phase to implementation, the Critical Incident Response Guide structures the financial institution to confront the challenge of a financial crime event. The guide adheres to a review schedule that takes into account the market and regulatory circumstances of the day. From pre-event planning to post-event evaluation of defences, the entire spectrum of possibilities is examined. A wide variety of communication methods are created to collect and disseminate valuable information. In an era of information overload, simple email and telephone calls will not suffice. ManchesterCF provides financial crime risk management training programs, advisory services and project management to financial institutions, financial intelligence units and public-sector agencies around the globe.

The Critical Incident Response guide can bring order to chaos at a time when your financial institution requires it most. The time for planning is when the waters are calm, not once the storm hits.
