Critical functions of a Risk-Based Anti-Money Laundering, Countering the Financing of Terrorism and Countering the Financing of Proliferation, Financial Crimes Prevention Program 

Tailored for Antigua and Barbuda and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS)

ComplianceAid and AMLFC Institute in association with Antigua & Barbuda International Institute of Technology will host a one-day AML/CFT/CFP seminar tailored to Antigua and Barbuda and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) market on Thursday December 8th, 2022, at Tradewinds Hotel in Antigua. This seminar will provide practical guidance to assist in safeguarding your institution with proper Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT), Countering the Financing of Proliferation (CFP) and Financial Crimes Prevention (FCP) measures.

During the seminar we will discuss the risk-based approach and provide guidance to assist your institution in meeting its obligations. Additionally, regulators have been emphasizing the importance of Know your Customer (KYC)/Customer Due Diligence

(CDD) and Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD), but some institutions have failed in achieving that goal. In this seminar, through the use of case studies, scenarios and role play, participants will learn how to conduct risk-based KYC/CDD, ask the right questions about the ultimate beneficiary of the funds, uncover politically exposed persons and undertake effective enhanced due diligence measures.

At the end of this one-day seminar participants will have learned how to:

  • Identify and handle various money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing schemes for instance: trade-based money laundering, fraud and other scams
  • Conduct effective know your customer, customer due diligence and enhanced due diligence
  • Develop a risk-based AML-CFT-CFP-FCP Program
