Description

This course examines the AML Compliance Cycle from initial risk assessment on prospective new clients through to the enforcement of AML sanctions. Initially, the course identifies the core requirements and contemporary (technologically enhanced) best practices in the risk assessment, client onboarding, and life cycle management of client accounts from the perspective of both the financial institutions and professional service providers (for example: accountants and auditors) providers. The course then addresses the challenges – for example: the quality of data and utilisation of predictive analysis – in providing the competent authorities and the relevant FIU’s with actionable STR information. Finally, the course examines specific examples – for example: information sharing and analytical resources – of how technology can enhance the effectiveness of the AML compliance cycle

ASSESSMENT

40%: Blend of competency based MCQs & scenario analysis
