Course Overview

Trade based money laundering is a highly effective way to launder the proceeds of crime or finance terrorism. By exploiting the complexities of international trade, criminals can transmit huge amounts of value across borders with little chance of detection.

This course will enable you to compare and contrast the trade-based money laundering typologies such as variable pricing and goods. You will gain an understanding of how financial crime risk can manifest and be mitigated in this huge global marketplace.

You will study this course in your own time and at your own pace, and you have up to 3 months to complete it.

In addition to the essential concepts of AML and CFT, you will also cover the following areas:

  • International trade and receivables finance
  • Introduction to money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation
  • International laws, regulations and industry guidance
  • Managing risk
  • Money laundering typologies
