Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program
When our system is fully deployed, CL Singapore Pte. Ltd. shall put in place a fully functional Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Program (“BSA/AML Program”) based on the model below to maintain the highest possible compliance with applicable laws and regulations relating to anti-money laundering in Singapore, the United States and other countries where we will eventually conduct our business. Our system will have:
All requisite internal policies, procedures and controls to identify any attempts to use NetLeaders for illegal or illicit purposes and to ensure our Advocates and customers basic protections under consumer protection laws;
Procedures to comply with applicable regulations and guidance set forth by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”), Suspicious Activity Reports (“SARs”), Currency Transaction Reports (“CTRs”);
Comprehensive records of orders and other transfers;
A Chief Compliance Officer who will be responsible for the implementation and oversight of our BSA/AML Program;
Procedures for Know Your Customer (“KYC”);
Performing regular, independent audits of our BSA/AML Program; and
A formal and ongoing compliance training program for all new and existing employees.
Policies and Procedures
NetLeaders is regulated under by the laws of Singapore. We plan to have our BSA/AML Program reviewed and approved by the relevant authorities, and if necessary, revised in an effort to comply with applicable rules, regulations and policies.
When fully implemented, our internal policies, procedures, and controls will serve to comply with applicable BSA/AML laws and regulations, some of which are outlined here on this page including, but not limited to, our Customer Identification Program (“CIP”), SARs, reporting requirements and audits.
All employees and officers of NetLeaders will receive ongoing broad-based BSA/AML training as well as position-specific training. They must repeat this training at least once every twelve (12) months to ensure they are knowledgeable and in compliance with all pertinent laws and regulations. New employees will receive training within thirty (30) days of their start date. All documentation related to compliance training including materials, tests, results, attendance and date will be maintained. In addition, our compliance training program will be updated as necessary to reflect current laws and regulations.
Our Chief Compliance Officer (“CCO”) will be responsible for leading the development and enforcement of compliance policies and procedures for our BSA/AML Program. Our CCO will also be responsible for reporting any violations of our BSA/AML Program. In addition, the CCO will be responsible for recording and filing SARs, CTRs and performing a BSA/AML Program audit at least once every twelve (12) months.
Our Customer Identity Program (“CIP”) will be an important part of our BSA/AML Program by helping to detect suspicious activity in a timely manner and prevent fraud.

Suspicious Activity / Currency Transaction Reports
We will file SARs if we know, suspect or have reason to suspect suspicious activities have occurred on the NetLeaders platform. A suspicious transaction is often one that is inconsistent with a customer’s known and legitimate business, personal activities or personal means. The Chief Compliance Officer will review and investigate suspicious activity to determine if sufficient information has been collected to justify the filing of a SAR. In addition, all currency transactions over a determined USD value will be reported to (FinCEN) by filing of a CTR. The CCO will maintain records and supporting documentation of all SARs and CTRs filed.
All records will be retained for seven (7) years and will be readily available upon request by the applicable examiner.
BSA/AML Program Audit
The CCO will be responsible for performing an audit of our BSA/AML Program at least once every twelve (12) months and presenting the results to the CEO and Board. The CEO will oversee the performance of an independent third-party audit of our BSA/AML Program at least once every twelve (12) months. The CCO will not be responsible for the independent audit, and the CCO’s performance will be a subject of the review. Results will be reviewed and discussed by senior management and our Board.
