Trade Based Money Laundering

Course Description

Trade Based Money Laundering is the latest challenge in international money laundering law enforcement.

As the financial community becomes more experienced in recognising and preventing traditional money laundering methods, such as large cash deposits, criminals have explored other means to scrub their ill-gotten gains. International trade and trade instruments are often used as vehicles to launder criminal money.

Businesses involved in international trade need to be vigilant to ensure their trades are not compromised by criminal elements infiltrating their organisations.

Banks need to be aware of the risks to their reputation should their services be found to have facilitated the process of money-laundering.

The sheer volume and international nature of trade can create a cloak of complexity and lack of transparency that financial criminals seek to exploit. This course has been designed by subject matter experts to provide an overview of trade-based money laundering (TMBL) risks. It introduces the core principles and features of TBML and outlines the various methods and techniques used by criminals. It gives a clear explanation of various TBML typologies and supplies practical insights into how to identify money laundering red flags.

Who should do this training?

This course is suitable for

  • banking professionals, particularly client-facing employees,
  • as well as risk management analysts and AML compliance officers across banks and businesses that trade internationally.

Course Description

Would you feel confident speaking up if you encountered misconduct in your organisation?

Whistleblowing is the act of exposing misconduct or an improper state of affairs within an organisation. Research shows that businesses that receive and investigate whistleblower reports show a significant and lasting decline in misconduct incidents. But often employees are reluctant to report misconduct they notice at work because of fear that the organisation or another employee will take adverse action against them for speaking up.

Organisations must build trust with their employees (and other third parties) to encourage them to make reports. This means creating a workplace culture of whistleblowing, and having clear and dedicated systems in place to ensure whistleblowers are protected and aware of their rights.

This courses uses real-life examples and scenarios to guide individuals on what to do when a reportable situation arises, what to expect from the reporting process and what protection they can expect. Advanced modules cover how to institute a whistleblowing culture from the top down.

Who should do this training?

This course contains a general module suitable for employees at all levels and in all facets of your organisation, as well as module for managers on whistleblowing obligations at an organisational level.

Course Outline

  • Module 1: Introduction to whistleblowing
  • Module 2: Whistleblower protections (for managers and other senior employees)

Introduction to Regulation E and the Electronic Funds Transfer Act

Course Description

This training is for bank staff on rights, liabilities and responsibilities of businesses and their customers in electronic fund transfer systems

Much of Regulation E outlines the procedures consumers must follow in reporting errors with EFTs and the steps a bank must take to provide recourse.

Banks’ liabilities with respect to problematic e-payments are a daily cost of doing business. This cost can be minimized if bank staff are properly trained in the various requirements, timelines etc, and are able to advise their customers accordingly. Failure to comply, on the other hand, subjects a bank to significant penalties.

This short, one-module course sets out the rights and responsibilities of consumers and of banks when there is an EFT error. It includes a real-life case study.

Who is this training for?

The course is a suitable introduction for all customer-facing banking staff.

This short, single-module course gives an overview of the many elements of TILA as they apply to both open-end (eg credit card) and closed-end (eg home lending) loans. TILA covers more than the requirement for lenders to provide clear and consistent loan information that allows consumers to make informed decisions about credit contracts. It also covers repayment procedures, right of rescission, limits on fees, dispute resolution, assessment of a borrower’s capacity to service a loan, record keeping, and more.
