Compliance is everywhere in banking and fundamental to the way that a bank operates.  Regulations arise from different sources and banks need to take an integrated approach to ensure that all matters are appropriately dealt with.

This course enables delegates to have confidence that they are able to adequately control compliance issues, adding value to their organisation and providing the necessary assurance that management requires.

Topics addressed in detail include the key compliance issues and their control within banking.  It commences with considering compliance and the key areas of risk including the governance aspects.  It then deals with a number of the key elements of compliance including elements of conduct risk, financial crime deterrence and sanctions risk.

Delegates will also explore the data issues and also a range of other significant compliance issues; throughout the course delegates will confront and learn the controls that will be required to support their work in this area.
