Introduction

There is much uncertainty in AML thinking at the moment. 2017 Regulations are with us, albeit finalised at the last minute, with extra things to think about, including new risk assessments, new officers and new beneficial owner provisions. Couple that with the ongoing fraud debates and concerns about the implications of Brexit and the recent cyberattacks on the NHS and major law firms and there is much to discuss.

Adopting a practical, hands-on approach, this 3-hour seminar seeks to plot a safe passage through the heavily-mined waters of frauds, financial crimes, money laundering and corruption. Can you trust anyone nowadays?
