Not a day goes by when financial and non-financial media do not make reference to the intention of politicians, economists and law makers to strengthen the current measures against money laundering (AML) and terrorism financing. More and more sanctions are imposed for non respect of AML and terrorism financing duties by financial supervisory authorities and by judges.
An efficient participation in the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing implies a good knowledge of the existing laws and regulations but also of the permanent professional duties. Faced with increasing regulatory duties, the management and the employees are often overwhelmed and cannot meet their duties if they have not been clearly defined.
As part of this course, PwC's Academy offers to highlight your requirements regarding this topic and to address in a comprehensive and practical way the questions you and your team are confronted with in the light of your mandatory professional duties and the "progressive" evolution of AML regulations.
Thanks to our strong expertise in the financial sector and our professional experience, we can help you to improve your AML knowledge according to the best practices.
