This course is an advanced primer for banking, compliance and audit professionals. In this course, we will address compliance issues, and the unintended consequences contributing to market gaps in trade finance, as well as providing information aimed at preventing criminals from using the financial system and your organization for their own purposes.

Over the years, shortcomings have been identified in the international trade finance examination process that, when resolved, contribute to closing market gaps, promote a shared understanding of the financial crime risks of international trade, while strengthening the fight against crime.

This course aims to address these shortcomings by providing a guideline to an effective audit and/or examination process (by auditors, compliance officers, risk managers, and regulators) as it relates to international trade finance.

The course is based on extensive risk management and international trade finance experience and working with bank regulators and commercial banks.
