E149v : Business Ethics: Best Practices in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) (Live Webinar)

7.00 CPE Hours (Category 2)
Live Webinar

Programme Objective
 
Increased scrutiny from the G20 on Money Laundering Practices, changes to the Financial Action Task Force Recommendations, and an increased appetite for sanctions against offending firms have all contributed to increased regulatory burdens being placed on financial services organisations and their employees. 

This course will give participants an overview of the current risk and liability regime centred on Anti-Money Laundering (AML). Using a mixture of recent, real-life cases, and scenario analysis, including previously imposed fines, business limitations, licence revocations, and personal punishments, this one-day session will explore the issues pertaining to compliance risks and developing AML typologies. The learning journey will develop through illustration of real-life scenarios to allow participants to see the wider business implication of poor analysis and internal controls.
