Financial Crime Prevention - Getting Compliance Right
The UK's financial crime prevention laws present a complex web of requirements. All businesses in the UK must comply with them, regardless of what sector they operate in and whether their business is a small domestic business or a multinational business.
There are a number of misconceptions around the scope and effect of the laws, and how to comply with them. Additionally, the laws in this area are always changing, with the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 gradually coming into force, the EU 5th Money Laundering Directive to be transposed into UK law (regardless of Brexit) and a review of the way money laundering suspicion reports are made and processed.
This webinar is aimed at all UK businesses. It is relevant to those working in-house in financial and other institutions, and to professional advisers both for their own businesses and for their clients.
