After looking at the requirements of our governing body in relation to an annual AML review we decided that this was something best undertaken by an external expert.  We were put in touch with Paul at Gemstone and from thereon the process was well organised and dealt with promptly.  Staff felt at ease talking with Paul for their interviews and did not feel like they were being interrogated at all.  Communication was great and the process as a whole was less stressful, straightforward and simple under Paul’s guidance.
