BACKGROUND-CHECKING GOLD SELLERS AND BUYERS - REUTER
We are regularly asked how one conducts due diligence on a gold Seller. Or, indeed, on ourselves as Buyers.
Well, if you are serious about gathering targeted intelligence, it's really quite simple. All you need to do is instruct your Bank to run the "names" through the Bank's internal compliance database. Job done!
You see, all the major banks, as part of their KYC ("Know Your Client") requirements, are signed up to Reuter's "World-Check" System. The system "flags" individuals & entities according to various "high-risk" categories: PEP (politically exposed people), CTF (counter-terrorism financing), AML (anti-money laundering), Anti-Corruption, as well as crimes and criminal activity, generally. It's a global database with over two million "information sources".
Our Banks, of course, routinely "background-check" all the parties named in the SPA. After all, the last thing we want is to find out that we are, unwittingly, participants in a money-laundering scheme; or that we have inadvertently purchased Au stockpiles associated with criminal activity, armed conflict or human rights abuses.
It's why, too, we request that Consultants engage professional Paymasters to receive and disburse their fees. Running large amounts of money through your bank account will invariably attract AMLR/FATF scrutiny; ask any bank compliance officer. More concerning to us, though, is that if a Consultant's name pops up on Reuter's World-Check, our Banks will stop the transaction dead in its tracks. Game over. No second chances.
