Course Overview

Banks and financial institutions have had anti-money laundering (AML) measures in place for some time. So criminals must look for ‘easier’ targets and new ways to launder their ill-gotten gains. This has brought many more professions within the scope of AML rules. This includes lawyers, notaries, accountants, insurers, high-value goods dealers and so on.

This course is designed to provide a good grounding in how criminals exploit systems and processes to launder money, plus how to mitigate the risks. Packed full of real-life case studies and practical, worked examples, this course is ideal for those working in risk management or compliance in both financial and non-financial firms, who must develop an AML compliance framework.
