AML & CTF New Entrant Programme 

Suitable for any firm with AML responsibilities like Estate Agents etc

The UK is one of the world’s largest and most open economies, whose strength is built on extensive and productive relationships across the globe. Ministers have the responsibility for national security and financial services, so they want the UK to continue to be an attractive country for legitimate business and a leading global financial centre. But they also recognise that the UK’s openness and status as a global financial centre exposes it to the risk of illicit financial flows.

Money laundering and terrorist financing are significant threats. Recent terrorist attacks in London, Manchester and elsewhere highlight the importance of the fight to deprive terrorists of the resources they need. Serious and organised crime has been estimated to cost the UK tens of billions of pounds every year. That is why we must continue to crack down on dirty money, strengthening the UK’s security and prosperity as well as that of our partners overseas.

Course Summary

As a new entrant to either the financial services industry or other businesses required to have in place effective AML & FCC controls, the range of requirements and responsibilities can seem overwhelming. There is also a danger of thinking AML is the only, or at least the biggest risk facing a firm. This is not true but it is a very high profile risk and the consequences of poor management or failure are very severe in both reputational and financial penalty terms. The MLR2017 has widened the scope considerably for AML procedures so that virtually all cash or near cash handling institutions have a responsibility to prevent financial crime.
At the heart of a successful AML process is a risk assessment, leading to a risk-based approach and a clear system for on-boarding new clients as well as reviewing existing relationships.  This workshop style, highly interactive course describes what “good” looks like, how to achieve it and how to understand why it is such an important feature of corporate governance.
