The financial services industry is one of the most highly regulated, fast-evolving and compliance-driven industries in the world. If you operate in this sector, you must be able to stay on top of complex and frequently changing regulations that vary according to region and country. As part of this, it’s imperative that your organisation complies with all the relevant anti-money laundering (AML) rules and regulations.

At GP Strategies, we are committed to helping our clients meet their obligations in this area by delivering tailored AML training programmes that provide maximum value to their individual employees and the organisation as a whole. Our courses will ensure your workers understand the money laundering risks that relate to their roles and enable them to meet their responsibilities to contain these risks.

What is AML training?

AML courses equip delegates with the knowledge and skills they need to identify money that may have been generated by illegal means. They make people aware of the major sources of money laundering and teach them how to increase vigilance and awareness in these areas. The courses also ensure that people are up to date on the latest AML regulations and laws and how these rules relate to their businesses. The programmes can include topics such as customer due diligence, ongoing monitoring and how to report suspicious transactions or behaviour.

The course offers delegates greater insights into the vulnerabilities that financial institutions have in relation to this type of crime, as well as management obligations concerning AML and how to develop a risk-based approach to this topic. The training can also be provided as part of broader financial risk management and credit risk training programmes.

AML courses are useful to anyone who requires a practical understanding of the threats posed by criminally derived money. This includes employees with specific AML duties as well those who work in financial services more widely.

What are the learning outcomes?

On an individual level, delegates increase their awareness of the risks presented to their organisations by money laundering, the laws and regulations that relate to their businesses and the measures they can take to mitigate the threat of this criminal activity. They will also become more confident in fulfilling their AML duties, helping them to perform their roles more easily and effectively.

Organisationally, these courses will help your business to become stronger in the area of AML. In turn, this will help you to avoid the potentially seriously problems associated with money laundering, enabling you to protect and promote your long-term success.

Why is it so important and what are the risks of not investing in this training?

Developments in technology and communication mean that money can now be moved around the world more quickly and easily than ever before. This has made the job of tackling money laundering even more of a challenge for both lawmakers and financial institutions. Although it is difficult to estimate the total amount of laundered money in circulation, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime suggests that this figure could be between two and five per cent of global GDP. The seriousness of this issue means that AML training is essential for all financial service providers. Read more about the importance of AML training.
