Aim / Objective:

Cost of non-compliance will always outweigh the cost of compliance and for your Firm, not fully complying to the current AML Legislation, is not any longer an option. Your Firm has been definitely targeted in the past and your Firm will be definitely targeted in the future, by Criminals and Money Launderers, and the AML Legislation is very strict in both disciplinary and criminal sanctions, in cases that “You have known” or “Ought to have Known” of money laundering performed by your clients.

Complying to the AML legislation, is now all about professional judgement and professional scepticism; the times when it was sufficient having a copy of a passport, a copy of a utility bill and 5 ticked checklist boxes are long gone and will not get your company off the hook with the regulatory authorities if things go wrong.

The Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance, has become a critical milestone for the Regulatory Industry, and now more than ever, the Regulated Firms (Audit, Accounting, Fiduciary, Investment, Funds) are under heavy scrutiny and risking heavy sanctions from both the Regulatory Authorities in Cyprus and Globally.

The aim of this course will be about offering a thorough understanding, for the junior staff up to the senior executive, of the current AML legislation for Regulated Firms and more importantly to offer practical solutions for an efficient and effective implementation.
