International standard setters and regional anti-money laundering (AML) bodies have highlighted the vulnerabilities in the sector to help banks and financiers reduce and contain their exposure to money laundering and financing of terrorism. All banks, investment banks, Islamic banks, financial institutions and many other reporting institutions are required to comply with internationally established "Know Your Customer" policy.
To prevent contraventions and sanctions for non-compliance, all players in the financial services industry need to adhere to the KYC policy and to implement and manage total KYC. Thus, all employees, especially front-line employees, and client-facing institutions which handle money, precious metals, securities, credit and domestic and international fund transfers are required to comply with internationally established "Know Your Customer" guidelines.
This course will provide participants with an insight into the implementation and management of KYC and what is required under current regulatory and good business practice requirements. The purpose of the course is to ensure that participants have a full understanding of KYC, its importance, its implementation and its management.
