Course Overview


Financial crime is one of the greatest challenges the global financial services industry faces and even more so now since the impact of Covid. Money laundering, terrorist financing and bribery scandals have led the FCA to ramp up its efforts to fight financial crime and protect the integrity of markets.


Multi-million pound fines have been issued to organisations, lengthy jail sentences dished out to rogue employees, and serious financial losses incurred. The repercussions of failure to detect financial crime are serious and the whole industry is vulnerable – especially now.


Let’s not forget that there are real victims of financial crime – it’s not just financial institutions that lose out. The victims of terrorist activity are obvious – simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But we are all victims, too, of money laundering by having to stump up extra tax to make up the shortfall created by the criminals not paying due taxes on the proceeds of their crimes.


The FCA wants to work together to make it harder for criminals to exploit your business and your clients. Naivety is not a defence – Firms can’t say they didn’t know suspicious activity was taking place. The market watchdog expects your company to recognise the red flags as part of your governance framework.


Led by an expert in financial crime prevention, this interactive course will open your eyes to this very real threat. Participants will learn to take a more proactive approach to financial crime, and make sure your workforce is on high alert.


  • Get to grips with the latest crime prevention regulation (national and international)
  • Recognise (and react to) the warning signs of financial crime
  • Understand how financial crime can affect your firm’s strategy
  • Implement early detection mechanisms and risk controls
  • Learn how to protect customer relationships
  • Mitigate the threat of financial crime


Make the prevention and detection of financial crime a key part of your business and motivate your staff to play their part in protecting the integrity of your firm. Realise that having good processes in place to prevent financial crime is actually not compliance-driven but represents excellent customer service. As one of the world’s biggest banks says: “We only want to do business with people we know and trust.”
