ICA Certificate in Managing Financial Crime in Trade Finance


Managing financial crime risk in trade finance is not an easy thing to do.  Yet the understanding of regulatory requirements related to trade-based money laundering and recent developments and other aspects of financial crime has never been more important.  Keeping up with risk mitigation is an ongoing challenge with new technology being a significant enabler to financial crime.

All financial services stakeholders have a part to play in managing this destructive force.  And your role is crucial in helping your organisation to better manage trade-based money laundering and to be compliant with rules and regulations.  The programme you are about to study will enable you to increase your knowledge and understanding of these complex areas and you will develop skills in working with clients and your colleagues and what to look for in terms of risk identification to enable you to support your firm.

This workshop is highly interactive, and you will be working through a complex case study complete with supporting artefacts, reflective of real-life scenarios.
