ICA Certificate in Money Laundering Risk in Betting and Gaming (Bahamas)


The risk of money laundering and terrorist financing within the gambling industry in the Bahamas is significant and growing. This view is recognised by not only the authorities on the islands, but also those within the United States and global organisations like the Financial Action Task Force. The legalisation of gaming houses and their rapid growth in recent years focuses this threat, challenging operators to ensure their staff are properly trained.

The Certificate in Money Laundering Risk in Betting & Gaming (Bahamas) will provide staff with a clear understanding of key money laundering and terrorist financing risks as well as the appropriate response to the threat. It will better enable operators to mitigate this risk whilst meeting their legal and regulatory obligations.
