Major financial centres attract investments from across the globe. Yet they are also attractive to criminals constantly seeking to hide criminal proceeds among the huge volumes of legitimate transactions. Both regulators and gatekeepers, the so-called obliged reporting entities, play a crucial role in safeguarding the integrity of financial markets, ensuring that financial services firms have effective and robust financial crime compliance and anti-money laundering (AML) systems and controls in place to manage and minimise financial crime risks.
This specialist course brings delegates up to speed with the evolving framework within which regulators, governments, law enforcement and industry work together to combat financial crime, but at the same time emphasises on the need for Senior GRC professionals to discharge their statutory duties within the limits of proportionality so that financial institutions and consumers are not disadvantaged by unintended consequences of extreme anti-financial crime measures.
Who Should Attend?
Delegates responsible for the prevention and control of financial crime, AML; Anti-Fraud; Anti-Corruption investigators, compliance officers, or professionals seeking to enhance their financial crime compliance skills. More specifically: Governance, Risk, Compliance and Legal professionals responsible for the prevention and control of financial crime, AML; Anti-Fraud, Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption, investigators, and other senior-level professionals serving as approved persons in financial and non-financial institutions in the Eurasian, Middle Eastern, West African, and EU markets.
- To bring delegates up to speed with the best practices in their sector
