What are the AML and KYC obligations of a Bank in the UK?

Banks in the UK are required by law to comply with anti-money laundering (AML) laws and Know your Customer (KYC) requirements to prevent criminals and terrorists from using financial products or services to store and move around their money. In the UK these requirements come mainly from the Money Laundering Regulations Act 2007 and apply across a range of sectors and institutions. KYC information that is gathered is also used to help Banks adhere to the strict financial sanctions regimes that are in place across the globe.
