Lysis opens in Australia providing AML & CLM services to regulated markets

After delivering many successful projects supporting client businesses in Australia, Lysis is proud to announce the formal establishment of Lysis Australia Pty. Ltd. in our new offices in Sydney and Melbourne. The Lysis Group delivers a unique combination of financial crime solutions, business operations and training services to the financial services, real estate, legal, accountancy, crypto, gambling and other regulated sectors. With more than 20 years’ experience, Lysis provides Financial Crime Compliance (FCC) and Client Lifestyle Management (CLM) services to financial services institutions on a global scale including wholesale and investment banks, wealth managers, challenger banks and organisations from a range of other regulated industries, plus cryptocurrency related businesses.

We take service delivery and expertise to the next level
With established operations in London, New York, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris, Dublin, Edinburgh, South Africa and now Australia, we cover the full scope of CLM/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) operations including client on-boarding, client outreach, know your client (KYC/CDD), customer screening, sanctions, transaction monitoring and off-boarding. We also provide experienced CLM/AML operations managers to run the teams. Equally important, our ability to scale and meet our clients’ unique needs, in an efficient and cost-effective manner, is matched by our proactive and highly responsive customer service approach. Our extensive level of experience indicates that a typical team structure for CLM/AML operations is 20% on-shore and 80% off-shore. We find this delivers the optimum balance of customer service, quality and cost effectiveness. In fact, our high-quality near-shore resources can be as little as 50% of our competitive on-shore rates.

Furthermore, all our CLM/AML operations personnel, regardless of location, go through the same structured career and capability development process and we test and certify staff at each level. The same certification process is used across all Lysis operating locations. We also invest in the capability to train, test and certify our staff on our clients’ policies & procedures which enhances quality and productivity and increase the effectiveness of new teams and new personnel in existing teams.
