Introduction

There can be no doubt that financial crime is a growth area. The regulatory authorities have increased their focus on pursuing offenders and new offences are being enacted to tackle financial crime.

Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) are two key areas of focus for the authorities. The authorities are focusing their attention not only on the 'primary' offenders but also on organisations and professionals that fail to take steps to address the risk of a breach. It is therefore vital that professional advisers have an understanding of the application of the key ABC and AML legislation and an appreciation of how the authorities will investigate suspected offences.

This course aims to increase your knowledge and awareness in this key area.
