Financial Crime Training Course

There are two kinds of financial crime. The first type generates illegitimate wealth (the proceeds of crime), and the second involves activities that protect, conceal or disguise those proceeds (money laundering).

Companies face a growing threat of financial crime, ranging from bribery, fraud and money laundering to terrorist financing.

Our Financial Crime Prevention Training Course will help your employees understand what financial crimes are, how to prevent them and what to do if they suspect a financial crime may occur.
