Money laundering and the financing of terrorism are areas of increasing global business and governmental concern.

The challenge is that preparedness tends to focus narrowly on the requirements yet loses sight of the practical objectives and outcomes for anti-money laundering and terrorist financing  awareness and training.

While there is always a lack of certainty in financial crime deterrence it is the application of judgement under the risk-based approach which leads to the way work should be conducted and the risks that the bank encounters.

During this course delegates will explore – through a series of highly-interactive group case studies – to identify the key warning signs, simulate making qualified and defendable judgements and then knowing which actions to take.

"The instructor is very knowledgable and gave out real cases which helped to understand fraud. "
