Course description

Financial Crime – Interpretations and the Practical Application

The FCA has increased its efforts to fight every aspect of financial crime and expects firms to understand where the risks lie and take appropriate steps to combat/react as part of its governance framework.

The session will highlight the real and significant threats and demonstrate how to take a proactive approach, enhancing the policies, processes and procedures firms currently have in place.

It focuses on the day-to-day activity required in regulated firms to ensure that they and their honest customers are protected from any aspects of these crimes. Anti-Money Laundering controls are important to prevent financial crime and complying with regulations is vital for businesses to deter financial crime activity.
