"'Did not realise we could have a debrief for the senior management at this level of quality. This has been most impactful.'"
Asset Management firm, Nigeria

Money laundering remains a key concern for all banks and the implementation of an effective financial crime deterrence program is a critical element of this.  Such a deterrence program provides assurance to customers and regulators as well as providing assurance to senior management.

But the regulations continue to change and this program is designed to ensure that you are fully up to date with the developments in this important area as well as the new regulations that are being implemented.

"'We are grateful to the L and D team for organizing this regulatory meeting which not only covered the topic but supported our future thinking as to what may or may note be coming down the line.'"
Commercial Bank (Risk Committee Member), Egypt
