Professional Certificate in Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism
1st - 5th June 2020, Virtual Learning
Over the last 30 years, international efforts to curb money laundering and the financing of terrorism have increased due to the crippling effects they have on the global economy and the assistance they provide in the proliferation of criminal and terrorist organisations.
In July 2017 the G20 called on all countries to shut down alternative sources of financing of terrorism and for Fintech, Financial Units and Banks to focus their efforts to develop new tools and technologies to track illicit financial flows. The support from the G20 has reinforced the Financial Action Task Force's (FATF) work in countering money laundering and terrorist financing by strengthening its institutional basis and empowering the President’s role while interacting with member countries and stakeholders.
This training course will provide a clear analysis of the strategies that can be employed to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Interactive learning will support participants’ understanding of the key themes of FATF objectives and recommendations, such as how preventative measures could be implemented to weaken the economic power of criminal and terrorist organisations and individuals. By examining best practice case studies and recent initiatives to prevent money laundering, participants will leave equipped to develop action plans that identify effective regulatory frameworks and practices, supported by interagency collaboration and stakeholder engagement.
A comprehensive analysis of the mechanisms behind AML/CFT initiatives will be provided, with subjects to be discussed including:
Experts in the field will lead this training through interactive workshops, lectures and best practice case studies, fostering innovation, creating learning and networking amongst peers.
By the end of the course the delegates will be able to:
