Anti-Money Laundering and Preventing Financial Crime
Classroom: £329 +VAT per person
The recent strengthening of criminal finance legislation has imposed further stringent requirements on your corporate responsibilities in several sensitive areas, including Anti-Money Laundering, Counter Financing of Terrorism and Bribery and Corruption. These have been compounded by the new offence of failing to prevent tax evasion under the Criminal Finances Act. If you cannot manage your AML/CTF, ABC and CFA response adequately there could be serious implications for your business and for you personally. This could range from unwelcome attention from regulators to civil or criminal action and in a worst-case scenario, criminal prosecution and conviction for facilitating financial crime.
This comprehensive one-day course will introduce you to all the key criminal finance legislation and lead you step-by-step through the process of recognising, assessing and managing the AML and financial crime risks to your business. Our expert presenter will demonstrate how to plan and implement a strategy that will satisfy the requirements of UK regulators.
This course is essential for MLROs, Nominated Officer, Compliance Officers, Finance Directors and Senior Executives with compliance responsibilities. It is of benefit to any staff working in finance, procurement or HR and any staff instructing contractors to act on behalf of an organisation.
