What our clients say about us

“I have been using MLRO Ireland since 2013. The team are sensitive, knowledgeable, professional and discreet. They conducted a successful post-rectification review for us when at the request of the Central Bank. I’d recommend their MLRO services to any Fund or Cash business.”

Mark Brosnan, Securewise

"We use MLRO Ireland as our outsourced MLRO service. They are the leading experts in their field and explain our obligations in a way that we understand. We are not AML experts, but they are. Their training is also relevant to our role as Directors. Afterwards we are confident that we understand our responsibilities."

Independent Director UCITS Fund

"MLRO Ireland and indeed Compliance Ireland have been providing AML services to us that we can trust. Their seminars are both practical and informative. Their guidance on our AML obligations and assistance with an AML inspection was invaluable."

Head of Compliance, Fund Adminstrator

"We decided to use MLRO Ireland as we needed to be sure we were complying with our AML obligations. We needed guidance on how best to be compliant but also to do so in a practical way. We had a checklist but we needed it implemented. To get all of the AML services including training from one company was just what we needed."
