Course description

Mastering Financial Crime Risks

Financial crime is estimated to cost the UK economy £14.4 billion a year, with significant impact being felt by both businesses and consumers alike. The numbers on fraud are even more shocking, with over £100 billion lost to the UK economy each year. The FCA in their 2018 survey reported that UK banks are turning away as many as 1.15 million customers per year for fraud and financial crime reasons.

This two-day course is designed to be a deep dive into the fight against every facet of Financial Crime with the back drop of organised crime and Modern Day Slavery. Financial institutions are not immune from the scourge of modern slavery in the form of human trafficking. Beyond the very human cost, human trafficking can present money laundering and other corporate liability exposure.
