WHAT UNICORN IS DOING AND WHY
Financial crime is an ever-evolving and challenging area for firms, therefore we have decided to rewrite and redesign our Anti-money Laundering (AML) content, enhancing the experience for the learner when undertaking this important aspect of regulatory compliance training.
COUNTER TERRORIST FINANCING
Unicorn is also increasing its coverage of the ongoing battle that regulated firms face in Countering Terrorist Financing (CTF). There are similarities that parallel AML – such as being subject to similar preventative measures around Customer Due Diligence (CDD) / Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) and the reporting of suspicions. The two are often mentioned together in the industry and regulation.
A CONSOLIDATED APPROACH
In Unicorn's current Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) library there are a number of AML courses split by crown overseas jurisdictions and regulated industry sector. These will be merged into one AML and CTF course and through the use of branching techniques the learner can select the jurisdiction most relevant to them at certain points in the course, for example where legislation and regulatory guidance differs.
The course uses the best principles of engagement to deliver practical, role-relevant learning and interactive case studies, making this learning that sticks.
The new course will be available in the GRC library in July 2019. Those interested in accessing the GRC content, including this new course, should contact Unicorn Training.
