Delegates will understand how the role fits into modern financial services businesses and also be given an overview of what could go wrong if the role is not given the consideration it is due; hearing about current cases and the Guernsey regulatory approach.

  • Current statutory requirements for financial service businesses
  • The competing pressures on the role of the MLRO
  • the regulator’s approach
  • Protections available


Course Benefits
