Money on a washing line - Anti-Money Laundering Training
Section 1 of our Anti-Money Laundering course looks at the stages involved in the money laundering process.

Money laundering is all about converting the proceeds of illegal activity into money or assets which appear to be legitimate or hiding money or assets (which may have come from legal or illegal sources). In this section, we look at the stages involved in the money laundering process.

Customer verification as part of our Anti-Money Laundering course.

This section is all about finding out about customers and deciding what level of risk they pose. It explains how to check identity and what should be done if there are any problems with the evidence provided.

Suspicious activity is a big give-away of money laundering.

This section looks at the RED FLAGS of suspicious activity - the things which everyone should be on the look out for. It explains the importance of reporting concerns, who should be reported to and what sort of information they'll need.

Our anti-money laundering training is summed up with a section on laws, acts and policies.

In this final section, we're looking at policies and procedures and at the money laundering Laws, Acts and Regulations.

seemed fairly comprehensive, if a little

all good, although I think I disagreed on one of the questions I answered incorrectly but maybe I was being over cautious

Business benefits

Over £40 billion are illegally laundered in the UK every year.

The financial services sector and anywhere which handles large amounts of money, property, or goods are all high-risk areas for money laundering and a number of very strict laws exist to help combat it. It’s a crime to have, move, or hide assets which result from criminal activity; to help somebody else who has assets resulting from criminal activities; and, most importantly, to fail to do anything at all – whether knowingly or unknowingly. Using our Anti-Money Laundering course to train yourself and your staff in how to spot, avoid, properly report, and safely guard against money-laundering is an essential step in doing something to comply with your legal obligations, avoid being an unwitting accomplice, and to make it harder for criminals to profit from their activities.
