Thanks to their professional experience in the Investment Fund Industry, our experts will cover not only the fundamentals of the prevention of money laundering and the regulatory environment from a Luxembourg perspective, but also how to deal in case of suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing. This training will be interactive and practical examples will be used to enhance the learning.
This module gives a brief overview of the Anti-Money Laundering Legal & Regulatory Framework in Luxembourg, including the professional obligations applicable to entities involved in funds and the control framework which must be in place to comply with these.
The role of the RR/RC will be explained. The module will focus on specific key operational challenges, the evolving requirements and expectations of Boards and types of failings identified by supervisors and auditors on AML/CFT controls. There will be any opportunity to ask questions on this vast and often complex subject.
