This series of seminars is designed to provide practitioners with the tools to understand their AML/CFT obligations and gain insights into how to approach and manage those obligations with confidence and in the most time efficient manner. The series will provide practical information about the particular role of an AML Compliance Officer as well as the obligations of other staff in a practice, the process of preparing a risk assessment, programme requirements and reporting.
Each session will be presented by Fiona Hall, a barrister and solicitor specialising in this area, with personal experience as an AML Compliance Officer with primary responsibility for the development and implementation of AML programmes for entities within a substantial designated business group. Fiona will co-present certain sessions in the series with other experts in the field, ensuring that practitioners are aware of the additional services available to help them and where they can source these.
