AML/CFT: Taking Client Responsibility

With research* estimating that 70% of all laundered criminal money passes through the financial sector it is vital for banks to manage this exposure prudently. The exposure manifests itself through the institution’s interaction with its customers, so managing this relationship carefully is very important. Most banks have adopted a ‘3 lines of defence’ model to manage the associated AML/CFT risks. Implementing this model and understanding the exact roles and responsibilities of each line can be a challenge. Using the highly regarded i-KYC training methodology can help organisations to effectively train staff about their correct understanding of their responsibility in mitigating AML/CFT risks.

Target Audience
This course is especially relevant for (Senior) Client Relationship Managers, Trade Finance (Operations) specialists, Risk Management analysts, Compliance officers, CDD analysts and Senior Executives.
Knowledge Test & Certification
Each module will end with a Knowledge Check to test if the participants have understood the content of the training. The results of the tests can be saved or printed and can serve as an audit trail for evidence towards the regulator.
