"Great insights into auditing the AML topic. Good explanation of the topics."
Audit Manager, VISA, South Africa

Poor standards of Corporate Governance and failure to adequately manage Compliance Risk failures have led in recent years to extensive criticism of financial services sector and to catastrophic problems. In the aftermath of such failures, both market and stakeholder expectations have increased significantly.

The review and re-assessment of a bank’s approach to this risk area can be challenging and has become an important initiative to be implemented alongside other, often competing, projects.  Governance and Compliance issues and best practise are within the scope of management – they must ensure that management approach these issues holistically and with consideration for overall enterprise impact.

A fragmented or uncoordinated approach is likely to lead to lack of clarity of purpose, increased costs and engaging over many months – usually the same senior management – in very similar projects.

In this course delegates gain from a consolidated approach to implementing structures that effectively deal with these issues. Bank internal auditors can be fully prepared and take on this important task to provide the stakeholders with the necessary assurance that they require.


"Good focus on the governance and risk management issues. "
