When the proceeds of crime find their way into the formal economy via a web of transactions designed to conceal their true origins, this is money laundering.
The UK, like most countries, has enacted tough anti-money laundering (AML) legislation with severe penalties.
It also has counter-terrorist financing (CTF) laws to stop rogue regimes and terrorist organisations moving money under cover of trade payments, investments, remittances 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.
