Amicus and Chooi & Co, a well-established and recognised law firm in KL, held a ‘Solve’ immersive exercise for representatives from the banking and financial sector to test the rigour of decision making and internal advice, the perils of de-risking and managing client risks when they arise.

The scenario was developed by Martin Polaine of Amicus in conjunction with Raphael Tay and Yap Yeong Hui, two partners at the long-established KL firm of Chooi & Co to draw out the AML/CFT risks, threats, vulnerabilities and challenges faced by financial institutions in the region.

The immersive exercises was conducted over 3 hours and took place at the offices of Chooi & Co.
