Anti-Money Laundering

Course Outline


The course starts by highlighting the extent of financial crime across the globe and discusses how firms can be targeted by criminals. It explains the offences of money laundering and terrorist financing and explores the role of FATF and the international legislative framework in place to combat these activities.

Case Study

The case study, which advances as the course progresses, is designed to highlight typical money laundering issues which can occur at the key stages of a client relationship and how these should be mitigated. At each stage, the learner makes a preliminary assessment of the action to be taken based on some key facts and is then presented with detailed content on the requirements in relation to initial and ongoing client due diligence, sanctions screening, suspicious transaction reporting and tipping off.

Course test

The course ends with a 10 question multiple choice test that selects at random from a bank of 25.
