Governance, Risk, Compliance (Intermediate Level)

Ethics and compliance training is helpful for encouraging appropriate behavior, setting expectations, demonstrating the organization’s commitment, and informing employees of laws or regulatory principles that may not be common knowledge.

Description

This course will help you to increase your personal ethics and explore your obligations to act with integrity in all aspects of your work and professional relationships. You will also appreciate an Ethical Code of Standards and examine how you can prevent bribery and corruption based on a financial regulatory context.

Description

Given its role and importance to any functioning modern economy, ‘trust’ is an essential ingredient between providers of financial services, its clients and even wider society. Culture, conduct and ethics are words which have come to pepper the regulatory lexicon. The importance of these intangible concepts and “getting it right” has been clearly communicated, and myriad speeches and initiatives in the financial services sector focus on these themes.

This programme does not purport to dictate how firms should define their values or operate their businesses. However, lawmakers, regulators and society have defined certain minimum expectations and standards of behaviour from the perspective of customer and business outcomes. These are sometimes framed or described (whether explicitly or implicitly) as issues of trust, integrity or honesty; concepts which have a distinct ethical underpin.

Firms and individuals operating in the sector must be conscious and mindful of these standards and expectations and consider both whether they are satisfying the letter and spirit of the rules and/or guidance and whether the values and principles which they have set for themselves are effective in directing and delivering the firm’s desired outcomes.

Training Duration

This course may take up to 2 hours to be completed. However, actual study time differs as each learner uses their own training pace.

Participants

This course is ideal for anyone wishing to know more about Ethics, Integrity and Fairness in Financial Services, and the regulatory requirements for investment firms, insurance and banking institutions.

Description

Of the many vulnerabilities and threats to the financial services sector, financial crime risk has emerged as a pervasive, yet widely misunderstood category of risk. As consumers, governments, and the financial industry have gained familiarity with various forms of financial crime, financial services organizations have seen that the underlying risk of financial crimes not only includes the direct action taken by criminals, but also includes the impact of deterrence, detection, and resolution on the organization and its customers.

Financial services organizations have the difficult task of effectively identifying the greatest risks to themselves and to their customers, protecting both parties against unnecessary risks and satisfying regulatory requirements for greater transparency, awareness, and consolidation of information across the organization.

Description

A key component to the development of financial markets is to agree standards of behaviour and provide mechanisms for dispute resolution. These standards, rules and codes of conduct may be established through self-regulation of the industry, or by means of a statutory approach where governments provide enabling legislation and establish statutory-based regulatory authorities.

Integrity and ethical behaviour are key parts of any code of conduct and have, as a result of the financial crisis, experienced renewed focus from professional bodies, governments and regulators. As financial markets have become increasingly global in nature and interdependence has grown, the financial sector has moved from self-regulation to a statutory approach. This has facilitated international cooperation and the development of improved and common standards.

The objectives and benefits of regulation is summarised as follows:

• increase in confidence and trust in financial markets, systems and products
• establish an environment to encourage economic development and wealth creation
• reduce the risk of market and system failures including their economic consequences
• enhance consumer protection, giving them the reassurance they need to save and invest, and

LGCA Certificates (Advanced Level)

Description

Effective Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) practices are essential to achieving and maintaining public trust and confidence in financial services, which are critical to the proper functioning of the sector and the economy. Poor GRC can contribute to bank failures, which can pose significant public costs. Such failures also have the potential to impact on any applicable deposit insurance system, and there is the possibility of broader macroeconomic implications, such as contagion risk and impact on payment systems. This was illustrated in the financial crisis that began in 2008.

From a financial industry perspective, GRC involves the way the business and affairs of a firm are governed by its board and senior management, including how they:

• set the firm’s strategy and objectives
• determine the firm’s risk tolerance/appetite
• operate the firm’s day-to-day business
• protect the interests of depositors, meet shareholder obligations, and take into account the interests of other recognised stakeholders, and
• align corporate activities and behaviour with the expectation that the firm will operate in a safe and sound manner, with integrity and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Training Duration

This course may take up to 3 hours to complete. However, actual study time differs as each learner uses their own training pace.

This course aims to describe and explain the Risk-Based Approach (RBA) procedures so that the firms focus their efforts on those areas where the risk of ML and TF appears to be higher. Resources should be efficiently invested and applied where they are most required.

Description

The risk-based approach (RBA) is central to the effective implementation of the FATF Recommendations. It means that supervisors, financial institutions, and intermediaries identify, assess, and understand the money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risks to which they are exposed, and implement the most appropriate mitigation measures.

This course includes a general presentation of the RBA and provides specific guidance using risk criteria such as country or geographic risk, customer risk, product or service risk. In addition, examples of risk factors under these risk categories are provided.

Content

The course is split into the following units:

1. Unit 1 – Risk Assessment for Money Laundering
This unit describes the need for combating AML risks and other financial crimes. Financial institutions must be able to respond to threats on a contextual basis to balance efficiency and cost needs with compliance obligations.

2. Unit 2 – Risk-Based Approach (RBA)
This unit describes the RBA methodology when assessing risk according to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendation: taking into account risks relating to types of customers, countries or geographic areas, and particular products, services, transactions or delivery channels.

3. Unit 3 – Assessing and Managing the ML/TF risk
A risk assessment enables the Financial Institutions to focus on its AML/CFT efforts and to adopt appropriate measures to optimally allocate the necessary resources. On the Basis of the assessments conducted, the Financial Institutions should have controls, policies and procedures that enable them to manage and mitigate the identified risks effectively.

4. Unit 4 – Simplified and Enhanced Due Diligence measures
According to FATF Recommendation 1, where higher risks are identified financial institutions and Designated Non-Financial Business and Professions (DNFBPs) should be required to take enhanced measures to manage and mitigate the risks.

5. Unit 5 – AML Case Studies

This final unit will offer a practical perspective by reviewing recent cases where financial institutions failed to adopt efficient risk-based AML mechanisms.

A key concern and significant risk for financial institutions remain the possibility of unknowingly becoming complicit in money laundering actions, where illegitimate money is moved into legitimate institutions. In order to mitigate such risk, FIs have strengthened their internal control systems by increasingly making use of Know Your Customer (KYC) and Customer Due Diligence (CDD) requirements, as part of their anti-money laundering (AML) strategies.

About the Certificate
