"Rule-based but risk-oriented" approach for combating money laundering in Chinese financial sectors
Purpose: This paper attempts to examine the practical condition of implementing risk-based approach (RBA) in Chinese financial sectors.
Design/methodology/approach: This paper comapres the differences between rule-based approach and risk-based approach (RBA), and provides different options to financial institutions considering their own circumstances.
Findings: This paper finds that capacity constraint is an issue for directly transplanting the RBA performed by developed countries to Chinese financial institutions.
Originality/value: This paper creatively proposes a rule-based but risk-oriented AML approach or partial RBA that fits Chinese financial institutions' reality underpinned by Chinese culture, and correspondingly, different assessment methods are presented as well.
