Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorist Financing Course

When the proceeds of crime find their way into the formal economy via a web of transactions that are designed to conceal their true origins this is money laundering.

To prevent this criminal activity, nearly all countries in the world have committed themselves to extremely tough laws against money laundering that incur severe penalties.

Terrorist financing can come from rogue regimes or well-organised terrorist organisations that feed their cells around the world under the cover of trade payments, investments, remittances and money for education.

Our Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorist Financing Course covers regulatory regimes across 17 key regions. 

We also have a UK focussed AML & CTF Compliance Course.
