Risk Survey Input — AML & Client Due Diligence Survey Development

I was pleased to catch up recently with my friend and colleague Marie-Claire Le Houerou and hear more about an interesting risk project she has in the works.

MC just celebrated her first anniversary at Intapp, having previously served as director of new business intake at Baker McKenzie for seven or so years prior.

One of the strategic projects she is managing is the development and running of a survey on a topic we’ve regularly covered on the BRB – firm policies, practices, and priorities around client due diligence and anti-money laundering.

(Actually, my understanding is that this will likely take the form of two surveys — one directed to regulated jurisdictions such as UK/EMEA, and another to unregulated jurisdictions such as US.)

I asked MC about her objectives and she told me: “My hope is to generate information and peer insight I always wanted in my roles as a client onboarding and risk professional.”

To help shape the questions and content covered in that exercise, I offered to put the word out to readers who might be interested in sharing their interests in and questions about these topics.

So if you have some input you’d like to share with MC, or just want to make sure you’re invited to participate in the survey itself, readers can reach out to her at: marie-claire.lehouerou@intapp.com.
