Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Developing an AML/CTF program and ensuring the effectiveness of the implementation and actual performance is critical. Most regulatory actions against reporting entities has not been for actual money laundering, it has been for failures to implement or maintain the processes that underpin your program.

With increased focus on making AMLCO’s or MLRO’s accountable for performance of programs, what should you do to ensure that you know each element of the program is performing as it should. How do you re-assure your board and senior management that the program is effective?

Have you been able to establish base line performance and understand your actual staffing and/or technology requirements to maintain the program across the entire business?

With a geographically or product diverse business it can be difficult to understand how each business unit or line of business is performing. Establishing a compliance assurance program can help with this and provide an early warning where business units’ processes are not performing as effectively as required. Rather than waiting for an internal audit review cycle you should be able to identify issues as they become evident rather than being advised of the issue 12 – 18 months after it started.

This webinar will work through the intricacies of understanding the risk of not knowing, developing and implementing a compliance assurance program and implementing it.

We’ll discuss:

  • What is at high risk of failure?
  • What are critical functions that must not fail?
  • What tolerance levels are there for backlogs?
  • What QA is being performed by the business and can you rely on it?
  • Are there functions in your program that aren’t being reviewed for performance?
  • Reviewing the performance of outsource partners.
