ADM Investor Services International Limited (ADMISI) has been fined £6,470,600 by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for failing to implement adequate anti-money laundering (AML) systems and controls. This penalty, which was reduced from £9,243,738 following a 30% settlement discount, highlights ADMISI’s significant failings in managing AML risks between 30 September 2014 and 31 October 2016.

Key Takeaways for Other Firms:


The FCA’s penalty against ADMISI underscores the importance of rigorous AML systems and effective risk management in the financial sector.
