Anti Money Laundering

Summary

Money laundering is more common than many people think; HMRC estimates that £40 billion is laundered in the UK every year. Criminals use money laundering to turn their gains into seemingly 'honest' money, and terrorists use it to disguise the intended destination of the money. Money laundering enables criminals and terrorists to continue their illegal activities and has negative effects on financial sectors and the economy as a whole.

This highly interactive course prepares your employees to do their part to prevent money laundering, by taking on tasks such as due diligence and checking someone's identity.
