There is a constant battle between criminal and terrorist groups and global authorities around the movement of illicitly gained funds. Money laundering and terror financing are two of the most important regulatory issues that financial institutions, particularly global banks, must deal with. Various government initiatives worldwide have established strict rules on the transfer of funds and confirmation of fund sources and client identity. Sources in the industry estimate that many billions of dollars of illicit funds and funds used for terrorist activities change hands every year. This course introduces the major global anti-money laundering initiatives and regulations, and how these aim to curb global money laundering and terror financing. These initiatives and regulations include the Bank Secrecy Act, the USA PATRIOT Act, and the Wolfsberg Anti-Money Laundering Principles, as well as other national regulatory initiatives around the world.
