ADGM Legal Persons & Arrangements Risk Assessment Report

The ADGM Registration Authority (RA) is pleased to present its inaugural Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (ML/TF) Risk Assessment of ADGM Legal Persons and Arrangements report (LPA report).

The ADGM community and in particular Financial Institutions, Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions, as well as other UAE authorities, regulators and law enforcement agencies can utilise the insights from the ADGM LPA report to enhance their risk assessments when engaging with ADGM entities.

The UAE has a comprehensive National Risk Assessment (NRA) as well as a UAE national Legal Persons and Arrangements risk assessment (UAE LPA). The ADGM LPA risk assessment findings and report are designed to supplement and support the UAE LPA.

ADGM is committed to combating financial crime and maintaining an effective anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing system within its jurisdiction.
