ACURIS RISK INTELLIGENCE


may present a higher money laundering risk. We use FATF data and additional non-governmental organisations such as Transparency International, the Basel Institute on Governance, Freedom House and others to determine jurisdiction risks such as perceptions related to corruption, risks of money laundering and terrorist financing. In our sample of sixty cases, we analysed multiple layers of


ownership and uncovered beneficial owner links to high-risk jurisdictions that our clients were not aware of, as detailed in the map below:


Conclusion


In the gaming industry, the risks within B2B relationships is primarily driven by the inherent complexity of the business sector as a whole. As the report shows in many cases there are risks around fines imposed by regulators on the third-party company or its managers, bans on marketing campaigns and promotional materials along with civil lawsuits. However, in some cases the risks uncovered are not obvious.


They require in-depth research in local language and detailed analysis of many different aspects of the third party: corporate structure; the personal background of managers, family connections, board members and shareholders; its core business, various business licenses and permits; and its


litigation and regulatory action history and additional media coverage; as well as researchers who are specialists in these areas and understand the industry nuances. As our experience shows, unknown risks to the customer


are often uncovered only after a detailed investigative and through due diligence process is completed. In some cases, the relationship will require additional monitoring and ongoing due diligence, in others, these risks can significantly change the decision as to whether the company should conduct business with the third party, or at least enter into the relationship knowing the facts to help aid business decisions. With the ever-growing global reach of the gaming industry and complexity and prevalence of corporate structures, the need for independent and highly experienced enhanced due diligence/investigations, be it via in-country desk top research and or on the ground investigations has never been so important. At Acuris Risk Intelligence we help gaming operators


protect their brand reputation and shareholder value, and confidently support the mitigation of regulatory risk exposure through best-in-class screening & investigation practices on suppliers, clients, and third parties, to create safer and more transparent business relationships across the world.
