Fighting Financial Crime in Practice

Course Outline

The first part of the course 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.

The second part of the course features an extended case study which places the learner in fictitious, yet realistic situations, where they must make a decision on how to proceed. For example, they are required to risk assess a client, identify the issues that might arise when the client expands their business and consider whether elements of the client’s behaviour are potentially suspicious.
