The seminar will cover the following areas:

-How to assess money laundering risk
-Bearing down on beneficial ownership
-Monies from high risk third countries
-Case studies on making suspicious activity reports

Jonathan commented: “Although money laundering compliance has been with us for twenty years, professionals working in the regulated sector are continuing to slip up with the requirements. Failures range from deficiencies in the customer/client due diligence process to a risk assessment process which is unfit for purpose. Non-registration with a supervisory authority and uncertainty over the type of activity which falls into the regulated sector is still an issue in some cases. The Money Laundering Regulations require regular training.”
