The following ICA Essentials courses are available:

ICA Essentials – Compliance

  • Next Date: 18 June 2024 (09:30-12:30)

Compliance is a critical business function. Whilst the downside risks of failing to comply with regulation are generally well known, it is less frequently recognised that, if done well, Compliance provides organisations with a significant competitive advantage.

ICA Essentials – Anti Money Laundering

  • Next Date: 17 June 2024 (09.30-12.30)

The challenge of managing money laundering risks in a global marketplace is one that demands a co-ordinated approach and a common understanding of evolving and emerging trends in both regulation and criminal activity.

ICA Essentials – KYC/CDD

  • Next Date: 13 June 2024 (09:30-12:30)

Ensuring effective customer due diligence is vital in managing the risk of all forms of financial crime. However, this presents increasing challenges, particularly when dealing with customers remotely.

ICA Essentials – Transaction Monitoring

Next Date: 27 June 2024 (14:30-17:30)

ICA Essentials – Managing Sanctions Risk

Next Date: 25 June 2024 (14:30-17:30)

Sanctions and sanctions compliance presents unique challenges and risks to a business. Requirements are continually changing in response to changing geopolitical events.

ICA Essentials - Financial Crime Prevention

Next Date: 05 June 2024 (14:30-17:30)
