“Money Laundering is BS”, so why should we care? (2016) – 1 CPD Unit

$66.00 $60.00

Basic anti-money laundering (AML) obligations apply to professional services firms in New Zealand and hardly any at all currently apply to Australian firms. As more comprehensive obligations loom, firms in both countries are starting to beef up their client on-boarding, screening and advisory processes in preparation for ‘tranche 2’. This webinar is as timely as it promises to be thought-provoking as Ron shares some inconvenient truths about the AML industry. He explains why ML is BS, and AML doubly so. To the chagrin of dedicated regulators, he will explain why it doesn’t much matter what the law says about professional services firms AML obligations. When you peel away to what ML is really about, it’s just plain good business to think just a little differently about the advice your firm gives which involves any form of financial transaction. Watch on-demand 24/7, any device. Ready when you are. All CPD for Me accounts include LogCPD where you can store and record CPD activities, from any provider – by CPD period.
