AML/CTF facilitated workshops with international banking executives

The GRC Solutions Consulting Team have been very busy running facilitated training sessions across the region.  Anti-Money Laundering has been a hot topic in both Australia and Asia.

In the last month alone, we have run workshops for a major telecommunications company in Singapore, a large Australian financial services company in Sydney and the management team a major Chinese bank.

Liam O’Brien delivered a series of Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF) workshops to a group of international banking executives studying at one of Australia’s premier graduate business schools.

The banking executives were all from overseas offices. All had English as a second or third language, which presented some interesting challenges.

Through the use of case studies and real life examples, the learners became fully versed in both the legislative and practical requirements of the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing regime.

The need for organisations to instil a strong understanding of the importance of AML/CTF within the business environment was shown by the number and the vastly different job roles who attended the facilitated workshop.

Their course was structured around 4 key areas:

  • The Australian regulatory landscape (for financial services businesses) and the purpose of AML/CTF Act and the role of ASIC, APRA, ASX, AUSTRAC
  • Compliance program fundamentals
  • Part A Program Requirements
  • Part B Program Requirements

Despite the language barriers, the feedback from these workshops was unanimously positive.

Our courses are built up from a range of practical experiences, the delivery of consulting projects, the research & development of our SALT online course, and numerous other speeches and presentations made by GRC Solutions consultants. Our consultants offer great insight into how the regulatory regimes operate in a practical sense, giving learners a clear opportunity to benefit from their knowledge and experience.
