Financial Crime Foundations
Governments and regulators constantly seek to stop illegally-obtained funds from entering financial systems and financial institutions. They require firms to adopt an array of systems, processes, technology and appropriately trained people in a bid to thwart the eye-wateringly high levels of illicit funds in circulation. This short course will set out the key elements of this vital area of risk. This course seeks to deliver greater awareness and confidence to those tasked with understanding and managing a wide spectrum of financial crime risk.
