7 4 2. INTRODUCTION Modern Banking is offering a chain of products and services to customers worldwide round the clock. Globalized trade, state-of-the-art communication systems and computer technologies have made it possible for business and trade to diversify activities to meet global competitive edge feasibly and within predefined parameters and values. The rising desire to become financially sound, cutting corners and avoiding legitimate means of business and trade, created the urge for concealing funds and their movement. However, there are certain customers who are taking advantage of sophistication in banking technology and are carrying on unethical business i.e. Money Laundering. Money Laundering involves taking criminal proceeds and disguising their illegal source in anticipation of ultimately using the criminal proceeds to perform legal and illegal activities. Simply put, money laundering is the process of making dirty money look clean. According to The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), crimes such as illegal arms sales, narcotics trafficking, smuggling and other activities of organized crime can generate huge amounts of proceeds. Embezzlement, insider trading, bribery and computer fraud schemes can also produce large profits, creating the incentive to legitimize the ill-gotten gains through money laundering. The threat of trafficking in drugs, arms, refugees and the criminal activities of ransom, kidnapping, terrorism, etc. has strengthened and therefore spread black money to the various segments of society. Catering to the increasing money laundering menace, efforts are being made by various bodies to spread awareness of money laundering all around the globe. Regulatory institutions have necessitated the implementation of anti money laundering campaigns by central banks and financial institutions. The Governments all around the world have been involved in developing and enforcing regulations to put this illicit trade to end. Purpose of This Procedure Manual This Procedure Manual aims to provide procedural guidelines about the measures and individual legal obligations set out under The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Recommendations, State Bank of Pakistan s Anti-Money Laundering/ Combating Financing of Terrorism Regulations as well as Customer Due Diligence for Banks and Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision set out by Basel Committee on Banking Supervision while keeping intact the compliance of Anti-Money Laundering Act, The Procedure Manual also aims to aid the training of employees in spotting and reporting suspicious transactions. Through this Manual we aim to: 1. Put in place and implement a robust KYC process. 2. Describe the main symptoms of money laundering. 3. Understand the sources & Channels of money laundering. 4. Suggest controls & remedies.
8 5 5. Specify the requirements of State Bank regulations, 6. Describe the steps taken by National Bank of Pakistan to counter Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing. Procedure Manual Objectives To enable the bank to ensure that only legitimate and bonafide customers are accepted. To aid the bank in verifying the identity of customers using reliable and independent documentation. To enable the bank to monitor customers financial dealings. This would help the bank to mitigate the risk of its channels being used for Money Laundering. To enable bank in implementing processes to effectively manage the risks posed by customers trying to misuse facilities. To prevent criminal elements from using the bank for money laundering and terrorist financing activities. To put in place appropriate controls for detection and reporting of suspicious activities in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, and procedural guidelines. To take necessary steps to ensure that the relevant staff are adequately trained in KYC/AML/CFT procedures. Penalties Due to Non Compliance The Bank and its employees are expected to comply with legal requirements that also require reporting of suspicious transactions. Failure to comply could have serious implications for both the dealing officials and the Bank. This could include individual criminal penalties and disciplinary action. Role as a Prudent Banker Our role is to make sure that we all know, and follow at all times, the procedures which apply in each of the day-to-day operations we are involved in. These will include: Identifying customers thoroughly when opening accounts. Moving money around between accounts. Recording transactions. Reporting suspicious transactions. Communications with Employees There will be regular communication from the Compliance Head about AML/KYC issues to the staff of the bank.

12 9 4. KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER The inadequacy or absence of KYC standards can subject banks to serious customer and counterparty risks, especially reputational, operational, legal and concentration risks. It is worth noting that all these risks are interrelated. However, any one of them can result in significant financial cost to banks (e.g. through the withdrawal of funds by depositors, the termination of inter-bank facilities, claims against the bank, investigation costs, asset seizures and freezing of assets and loan losses), along with considerable management time and energy to resolving problems that arise. Effectively devised KYC policy is the most important defense against the money launderers. While fulfilling legal requirements, the contents of regulatory requirements should be kept in view before establishing a customer/account opening relationship. Benefits of KYC The knowledge of the bank s customer base and business operations will also help the bank as under: a) Detect suspicious activity in a timely manner. b) Enable deeper analysis of potential and current clients. c) Promote compliance with all banking laws. d) Promote safe and sound banking practices. e) Minimize the risk of bank s channels being used for illicit activities. f) Protect the Bank s reputation & image. g) Bolster confidence among its customers, other banks, and bank regulators. h) Protect bank against negative legal consequences related to cooperating with entities supporting terrorism.
13 10 5. KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER GUIDELINES 5.1. Customer Profiling Customer profiling is a way to create a portrait of our customers to help make decisions concerning our service. Customers are broken down into groups of customers sharing similar goals and characteristics. Factors such as customers background, country of origin, public or high profile position, linked accounts, business activities or other risk indicators shall be considered while profiling customers. The main purpose of profiling is to understand our customer, particularly customer s source of wealth and the financial behavior in the account to highlight any unusual activities in his or her account/conduct. Every new customer shall be profiled in CAOP using judgment and information obtained through Customer Due Diligence (CDD)/KYC process. Change, if any, in customer profile (such as change of address, change in business, change in phone number, etc.) and their sources of funds should be recorded to maintain an updated knowledge about the customer and their businesses Controls and Precautions NBP will exercise sound controls, precautions and vigilance on KYC measures adopted to counter the money laundering menace. The Bank will develop and maintain necessary controls and precautions in its Banking Operations by different ways i.e. 1. Risk Assessment 2. Customer Acceptance and Identification. 3. On-Going Monitoring of Accounts. 4. Record Keeping Customer Acceptance and Identification Type of Customers NBP will not accept As a Policy, the Bank shall not deal / accept the following types of persons/entities as customer: The negative list shall include: Shell banks/companies Unregistered arms-related business Bearer share company
14 11 Accounts where the customer is acting on behalf of another customer to open an account.

UN Sanctions list: List established and maintained by the Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011) with respect to individuals, groups, undertakings and other entities associated with Al-Qaida. 2. Office of Foreign Assets Control Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List 3. EU-list 4. Sanction lists issued by the Ministry/regulators of the respective country where NBP Operates. 5. Banks Internal List Risk Assessment NBP Centralized Account Opening Portal (CAOP) Risk Rating Criteria 1 Keeping in view the inherent risks and in compliance with SBP s regulations, the Centralized Account Opening Portal is updated and aligned with SBP recommendations for risk categorization and ongoing monitoring. Accounts will be tagged as high-risk by CAOP on the basis of following criteria: 1 Instruction Circular No. 98 of 2012 ( CDD Measures for Establishing Business Relationship Ranking of Accounts Opened on the basis of KYC Risk Based Approach)
15 12 High Risk Customer /Categorization 1. Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) PEP is an individual who has been entrusted with prominent public functions in the country, such as: Prominent public functions Government ministers, Senior civil servants, Senior judicial & military officials, Senior executives of state owned corporations, Senior political party officials Their close family members which include spouses, children, parents, siblings and may also include other blood relatives and relatives by marriage. Their closely associated persons which include close business colleagues, personal advisors/consultants of the politically exposed person as well as persons who are expected to benefit significantly by being close to such a person. The term PEP does not extend to middle ranking individuals in the specified categories. Risks Associated with PEPs There is always a possibility, especially in countries where corruption is widespread, that such persons abuse their public powers for their own illicit enrichment through the receipt of bribes, embezzlement, etc. Accepting and managing funds from corrupt PEPs will severely damage the bank s own reputation and can undermine public confidence in the ethical standards of an entire financial center. Since such cases usually receive extensive media attention and strong political reaction, even if the illegal origin of the assets is often difficult to prove. In addition, the bank may be subject to costly information requests and seizure orders from law enforcement or judicial authorities (including international mutual assistance procedures in criminal matters) and could be liable to actions for damages by the state concerned or the victims of a regime. Under certain circumstances, the bank and/or its officers and employees themselves can be exposed to charges of money laundering, if they know or should have known that the funds stemmed from corruption or other serious crimes. Course of Action 1. All PEPs and their close associates or family member s accounts will be treated as High Risk Accounts and accordingly will need approval of Compliance Group Head office.
