This course (coming in late Fall 2020) will provide information on understanding how money laundering works, current issues, trends, and methodologies used by today’s bad actors – once having accumulated money from an array of illicit activities – who hide, disguise, and launder so that authorities cannot determine where the dirty money comes from. The instructors will share practical insights on what works and what does not by examining effective international standards such as those by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), AML measures, best practices, and case studies in detecting and preventing the laundering of dirty money. This course will also focus on trade-based money laundering (TBML), underground financial systems, black market exchanges, new payment methods (NPMs), and other illicit finance processes, vehicles, and methods that enable bad actors to disguise and clean their dirty money.
The training webinar is aimed for professionals in all sectors and industries impacted by illicit finance and TBML.
Topics covered in this five-week course over 10 sessions including the following:
i. Introduction to Money Laundering (Understanding Illicit Finance)
ii. Illicit Financial Flows
iii. Trade Based Money Laundering (TBML)
iv. Misuse of the International Gold Trade
v. Underground Financial Systems
vi. Black Market Exchanges
vii. Free Trade Zones (FTZs)
viii. Offshores and Safe Havens (Illicit Cash)
