This anti-money laundering training will describe the reasons and methods of money laundering in financial institutions. This will help attendees protect themselves from regulatory risk by establishing an effective anti-money laundering system within their financial institution.

Why You Should Attend

You probably have spent huge sums of money and time learning the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) regulations, but it is necessary for every employee of a financial institution to possess updated knowledge in detecting and preventing financial fraud or money laundering within their institution. This online training on anti-money laundering will take attendees beyond the basics of Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) regulations to the point of criminal behavior.

This AML compliance webinar will help attendees learn how methamphetamine dealers’ income could be laundered and how criminals try to “launder” their money. It will focus on educating financial institution staff about the types of transactions criminals utilize and criminal financial behavior. This comprehensive tool on anti-money laundering will help you streamline your investigations, to perform due diligence research and to fight fraud in order to protect your organizational assets.

Topic Background

Financial institutions across the globe are facing increased pressure to meet Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance requirements. Established names in banking such as HSBC and Standard Chartered have paid huge fines for laundering money for various criminal enterprises. Standard Chartered paid a fine of $327 million while HSBC paid $1.9 billion. According to a report in The Economist, both the banks acknowledged, through signed statements, that they had facilitated illicit financial transfers on behalf of Iran, Sudan, Myanmar and Libya. HSBC was accused of having also laundered money on behalf of Mexican and Colombian drug cartels.

These and other previous significant settlements with US authorities show that all financial institutions are vulnerable to money laundering and need better, stronger compliance processes in order to avoid the regulator's wrath and billions of dollars in fines.
