Anti-money laundering & counter terrorist financing

Anti-money laundering & counter terrorist financing

Germany is a member country of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the European Union (EU) and has enacted laws and rules designed to implement the requirements of the EU and the FATF concerning the combating of money laundering and terrorist financing.

In order to detect and prevent money laundering and potential terrorist financing, Deutsche Börse Group has adopted group-wide policies and procedures governing compliance with national and international anti-money-laundering standards. These policies and procedures apply to all relevant branches and subsidiaries of Deutsche Börse AG taking into account provisions of local law.

In particular, written policies and procedures including provisions regarding customer identification and record keeping, a designated Anti-Money Laundering Officer, training and informing of the relevant employees and independent audits (internal and external) to test the implementation are part of this concept.
