Anti-Money Laundering – New Zealand

Course Description

The Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism Act 2009 (AML/CFT) is the primary legislation intended to satisfy New Zealand’s international obligations to combat money laundering. The Act establishes the grounds for prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of money laundering.

This course will help you understand the various identification and reporting obligations of the Act as well as related legislation such as the Terrorism Suppression Act 2002.
