AML RightSource, a Gabriel Partners Company, is pleased to announce its affiliate membership with the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists (ACFCS).

ACFCS is a leading provider of practical tools and knowledge which help professionals achieve quality results in financial crime detection and prevention.

"I am delighted that AML RightSource has agreed to support and partner with ACFCS. After meeting Vic Maculaitis, and the entire AML RightSource management team, it was evident we were aligned in our approach and our support for the concept that both organizations want to provide the best thought leadership for our clients. I am confident we will continue to foster a mutually beneficial relationship for many years." – Garry Clement, Executive Director of The Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists

The partnership with ACFCS provides AML RightSource employees with ongoing training, certifications, and information pertaining to emerging trends within the industry. AML RightSource employees will have exclusive access to ACFCS resources, articles, webinars, and industry best practices related to financial crime threats and methodologies. Moreover, our employees will have the ability to connect with thousands of members in the ACFCS global community, including financial crime compliance professionals with subject-matter expertise in money laundering, terrorism financing, fraud, bribery and anti-corruption, sanctions, and other areas. Employees will also be able to connect with law enforcement and government regulatory professionals.

While silos and fractures may develop within financial intelligence units at financial institutions, AML RightSource uses an innovative approach to avoid silos. Analysts are consistently involved in diverse projects, which provide insight into an array of financial crimes and enhance their subject-matter expertise. This also offers them a comprehensive strategy to identify and report potentially suspicious criminal activity. The relationship between AML RightSource and ACFCS developed out of a mutual recognition of the need for an approach that integrates the risks associated with financial crimes as an interconnected whole. Vic Maculaitis, Partner and Head of Financial Crimes Advisory at AML RightSource, stated, "Through some great conversations with Garry Clement, Executive Director of The Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists, and the leadership at ACFCS, we found many similar views of an integrated financial crimes landscape. We are very excited about our partnership with another forward thinking organization such as ACFCS."

Membership with ACFCS enables AML RightSource to leverage shared tools, techniques, and expertise; to develop a cohesive global strategy; to improve results for its clients; and to streamline procedures in our continued efforts to deliver financial institutions with high-quality BSA Department Staff Augmentation services and Financial Crimes Advisory services.
