Anti-Money Laundering - Singapore
Training on Anti-Money Laundering Compliance
The Anti-Money Laundering course trains reporting entities and their representatives to understand their anti-money laundering compliance obligations and provides a general understanding of the risks related to money-laundering and terrorism financing.
Over $US1.5 trillion is laundered worldwide every year. Of that amount, it is estimated that $US200 billion is laundered in the Asia-Pacific region alone.
Businesses need to prepare an effective anti-money laundering policy consistent with anti-money laundering guidelines.
We explain how to adopt an Anti-Money Laundering program, conduct Know-Your-Customer procedures and to provide reports to the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
The intent of this course is to provide a general understanding of money-laundering and terrorism-financing risks, and give specific understanding of the various legislative obligations imposed by the Act.
Who needs to comply with AML regulations?
Singapore's AML/CFT regime mainly applies to individuals and companies engaged in financial service businesses.
Some obligations vary depending upon the services a company provides.
For example, certain organisations such as banks, financial advisers, life insurers, money changers and trust companies, have additional AML/CFT obligations if they are exposed to a high AML/TF risk.
Nevertheless, the obligations may apply to anyone in the course of his or her professional or business duties, including the duty:
- to report suspicious transactions
- not to enter into arrangements that facilitate the retention of benefits of crime
- not to acquire, possess, use, conceal or transfer benefits of criminal conduct
