Overview
The 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States have led the international community to formulate new legislations and guidelines to counter the escalating risks of Money Laundering. Across nations, Anti-Money Laundering training and compliance requirements have therefore gained significance.
It is in this light that the American Congress brought about new measures in the form of International Money Laundering Abatement and Anti-Terrorist Financing Act, 2001(Title III of USA Patriot Act, 2001) that amended the Bank Secrecy Act, 1970 and its implementing Regulation. For financial institutions today, failure to comply with these requirements entails severe penalties in addition to increased exposure to compliance, reputational, strategic and operational risks.

After completing this course you will know in-depth:
  • The process of Money Laundering, measures against money laundering and initiatives taken by various organizations to combat terrorism
  • Comprehend the implications of offshore financial centers and non-cooperative countries on Money Laundering
  • Understand the implications and penalties for non-compliance with Anti-Money Laundering legislations
  • Due diligence measures undertaken by financial institutions to deter money laundering and terrorist financing
  • Regulations applicable to banks
