Anti Money Laundering

Premier being a duly licensed International Corporate Service Provider and licensed International Trustee regulated by the Financial Services Authority in Seychelles, has the duty and responsibility to actively prevent it services from being used for money laundering, funding of terrorist activities and other illicit activities. Money laundering and terrorist financing have been identified as crimes that have the potential to affect the soundness and stability of our financial system and to damage the reputation of Seychelles and that of our organization in the same process.

To fulfill this objective we have adopted internal policies, procedures and controls, based on the Codes set forth by the Financial Services Authority.

The Anti-Money Laundering (Amendment) Act 2011 (AMLAA 2011) established the Financial Intelligence and Assets Recovery Unit (FIU) which is a separate legal body reporting directly to the President of Seychelles. The AMLAA 2011 and FIU allow investigation into illicit and suspicious transactions. The FIU has been granted a wider range of powers to ensure that proper due diligence is carried out on financial transactions in Seychelles.

We verify client identity through documentary evidence, online authentication, or both. In situations we cannot form a reasonable belief of what we consider the true identity of a client, we will disengage provision of our services with immediate effect.

We document evidence of Identity verification including all information provided by clients and retain these records for 7 years. We employ strict procedures both to ensure that only relevant information is shared and to protect the confidentiality of client information.

Premier carries out ongoing audit checks on the adequacy of this AML/CFT policy and continuously develops internal controls based on its findings.
