A member of our team summed it up:
'If you do not maintain a sufficient level of information about your customers, not only do you expose yourself to the regulator, but you cannot demonstrate that you fully understand the underlying relationships with your customers, and as such, the subsequent risks. Weaknesses in CDD ultimately increases the risk of facilitating money laundering and/or terrorist financing.'
