The number of complex financial crimes that hit financial institutions has increased significantly in recent years. While technologies are important, they alone can create an over-reliance and reactive approach to mitigating the risk. What is more instrumental is to develop a concrete understanding of various financial crime trends, and the dynamic regulatory regimes that govern the industry.

ALB is pleased to present an exclusive International Anti Money Laundering and Financial Regulatory Compliance masterclass to help your team stay abreast of the CFT/AML environment. This hands-on masterclass provides you with the familiarity of the financial crimes categories, and the regulations to better navigate, strategize resources, and proactively select the right “weapons” in combatting financial crimes

The class is conducted by Sam Gibbins, Lead Facilitator, Complilearn. Rather than simply lecturing, Sam uses interactive exercises, encouraging participation and addressing practical implications related to recent AML/CFT cases. This masterclass is valuable for both junior and senior compliance/ legal professionals within financial institutions.

Professional facilitators carry out our training with well-developed group and classroom management skills in a non-critical environment, which encourages individuals to practice skills that are being taught. We do not sit individuals down and talk through a stack of PowerPoint slides; we engage them and discuss core ideas and concepts to bring their ideas and energy out, cementing the regulatory and commercial principles we are promoting in their mind. We do not focus on an unattainable set of KPIs, but rather achievable principles that can be readily utilised, adapted, and developed in an everyday working environment.
Discussion points and simulations, aligned with a structured training plan and real-life scenarios, allow individuals to develop the skills necessary for success. Handbooks will be used, but individuals are encouraged to make use of the sessions to take their own notes, practising the vital audio, visual and kinaesthetic skills which are vital in their role, learning how to process and store information which they will later be required to recall.
