UK Anti-money Laundering & CTF Training

Endorsed CPD JPEG Logo

The UK has enacted tough anti-money laundering (AML) legislation with severe penalties. Money laundering is when criminal proceeds enter into the formal economy via transactions designed to conceal their true origins.

It also has counter-terrorist financing (CTF) laws to stop rogue regimes and terrorist organisations moving money under cover of trade payments, investments and money for education.
