Tackling Financial Crime through integrated KYC and AML Techniques

Leading financial institutions are rethinking their organisational structures to manage financial crime risk more effectively. The integration of and alignment of risk and compliance functions will be crucial if the financial services sector is to tackle the facets of financial crime risk. The prevention and detection of Financial Crime is of utmost importance.

This course is designed to provide a deeper understanding of where the risks lay in your organisation and the laws that shape our activities.

Governments and financial markets throughout the world recognise financial crime as one of the greatest threats to the global financial services industry. The FCA has increased its efforts to fight every aspect of financial crime and the regulator expects your company to understand where the risks lay in your firm and react appropriately as part of your governance framework. Training and development is absolutely a key part of this framework.

During this intensive 1-day course we will illustrate this real and significant threat to our industry and show you how to take a proactive approach to anti-money laundering, enhance the policies, processes and procedures you currently have in place and ensure that everyone in your organisation is ready to protect your firm and the market place.
