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.
Our UK AML & CTF Course will help your staff understand their obligations regarding prevention, due diligence and reporting suspicious activity.
Our complementary Global AML & CT Course provides additional training covering 17 key regulatory regimes.
Versions are available as part of our Compliance Essentials and FCA Compliance Libraries.
