Who should attend this course?

Introduction

Compliance with frequently updated anti-money laundering laws and regulations has become one of the biggest challenges facing financial institutions. With ever-evolving and increasingly sophisticated money-laundering schemes, it has become imperative for financial institutions to keep well informed of the latest developments, both regulatory and otherwise, in this area. Under the law, financial institutions are obliged to effectively comply with their AML obligations and to regularly train their employees and relevant staff on recent money laundering developments (both new money laundering trends and techniques and regulatory developments), the identification of ‘red-flag’ indicators, effective AML risk assessment of their institutions’ products and services, and how to take appropriate countermeasures to address these risks.

Financial institutions failing to comply with their AML obligations are routinely subject to heavy monetary penalties. In addition, the inevitable and irreversible reputational damage to these institutions is even more difficult to quantify, but it is equally destructive to both the organisation involved and its principals.

This course is designed to enable participants to understand the recent developments in anti-money laundering schemes, the AML obligations applicable to their institution, any recent/potential developments in the AML law, AML best practices in different sectors subject to (or targets of) recent money laundering schemes, the effective identification of ‘red-flag’ indicators, and how to efficiently manage AML risks in their sector.
