    As far as the creation of AML  and Financial Crime Compliance policies is concerned, the gatekeeper, controller and the place where the “buck stops”, is the MLRO.  This is a critically important position within any firm covered by AML Rules. When it comes to the identification, detection, escalation, reporting, managing and training of staff on Anti-Money Laundering procedures, it is the responsibility of the MLRO to ensure this all happens as effectively and efficiently as possible.

    Specific topics to be covered during the session

    • Responsibility for implementing and overseeing the CDD process, onboarding, transactions monitoring and alert escalation.
    • Ensuring new and changing regulatory requirements are complied with fully and in a timely fashion.
    • Developing internal and external reporting processes.
    • Keeping records.
    • Designing, maintaining and overseeing internal controls and procedures.
    • The essential requirement to ensure proper training of staff.
    • Reporting to the Board and Board oversight.
    • Evaluation of Internal Reports and Submission of Reports.

    Target Audience

    MLRO’s and all staff working within a compliance function, especially those charged with AML escalations/investigations. Members of the internal audit function. Lawyers, real estate agents and accountants who directly handle client finances, interpret financials and/or represent clients in setting up their business. Senior managers and top management would also derive considerable benefit from attending, as they are the ultimate risk owners. Front line staff who have to “make things happen”.
