Singapore is no secret among the best financial hubs globally as it adopts safe financial operations for outstanding performances. However, all these achievements are thanks to the stable regulatory framework in the country. If you have a financial enterprise in Singapore or are considering opening one, you have come across three essential documents during any license application process. They include:

  • • Risk Management Framework
  • • Compliance Policy
  • • AML / CFT Policy
These documents are essential during the application process and play a vital role in a financial company’s operations.

What is Risk Management Framework?

As the name suggests, Risk Management Framework (RMF) is responsible for coverage and documentation of all the business risks. It is popular among financial companies. Why is that?

Explaining, in Brief, the Following Subheadings on Risk Management :

External Controls

External controls in risk management are the measures or systems put in place by an organization to manage external risks that may affect its operations. External controls include risk assessments, contingency planning, insurance coverage, compliance with regulations, and monitoring external factors that may impact the organization’s risk profile. 

Business Process 

Business process in risk management is a systematic approach organizations use to identify, assess, mitigate, and monitor risks that may impact their business operations. It involves several activities aimed at helping organizations manage risks effectively and efficiently.


Compliance Audit means an organization’s adherence to laws, regulations, standards, and best practices relevant to its operations. Compliance helps an organization conduct its business ethically and legally to minimize the risk of penalties, fines, or other legal consequences. It also helps to identify and manage risks through regular assessments and audits of the organization’s activities and processes.

Compliance Internal Audit

Compliance Internal audit is a function within an organization that provides independent and objective assurance to improve the organization’s operations. Internal auditors evaluate the effectiveness of the organization’s risk management processes and make recommendations for improvement. They provide valuable insights and guidance to senior management on improving risk management practices across the organization.

Conflict of Interest

A conflict of interest is a situation whereby an individual or company has competing interests that may interfere with their ability to act impartially or in the best interests of their stakeholders. Conflicts of interest can create risks by impairing objectivity, leading to biased decisions or actions, or compromising integrity. An example is where an employee has personal or financial interests that conflict with their professional duties, or where an organization has business relationships that may affect their decision-making.

Business Continuity

Business continuity is an organization’s ability to continue or rapidly resume critical business functions after a disruption, such as a natural disaster, cyber-attack, or another unforeseen event. Business continuity planning is identifying potential risks and developing strategies to minimize their impact on the organization’s operations.
