Above a certain level, money laundering and corruption work in tandem. A financial institution’s inability to maintain anti-corruption defences can lead to regulatory failures and even criminal prosecution.

Anti-corruption training is one of the most critical components of a financial institution’s compliance regime. Without specific training, financial institutions run high levels of risk in their financial crime compliance programs. International research, industry-specific examples and red-flag indicators are incorporated into ManchesterCF’s FIU CONNECT (Corruption) training program

The FIU CONNECT (Economic Sanctions) training program from ManchesterCF advises participants on the purpose of sanctions, the consequences of non-compliance and methods that can be used to detect and mitigate sanctions risk.

To combat environmental crime, financial intelligence must be gathered from a variety of sources.

Through detailed case studies, examples and red flags, the FIU CONNECT (Environmental Crime) training program advises participants on suspicious financial patterns that may indicate the trafficking of illegal environmental resources.

The FIU CONNECT (Fundamental AML) training program can help FIUs put the cornerstone of a durable and adaptable compliance regimen in place.

FIU CONNECT (Human Trafficking) advises participants on suspicious financial patterns that may indicate potential human trafficking through detailed case studies, examples and red flags.

By analysing transactional activity, patterns related to possible human trafficking and domestic sex slavery can be detected. Under these circumstances, financial institutions have a moral obligation to transmit accurate and timely financial intelligence to their national financial intelligence unit.

For markets that demand the implementation of a risk-based approach, targeted training is mandatory, not optional.

The consequences of weapons proliferation can prove disastrous for society at large and this is often reflected in the severe regulatory repercussions for banks that facilitate proliferation, whether they intend to or not. Financial institutions are expected to play their part in counter-proliferation efforts.

With these building blocks in place, the importance of logic, structure and clarity of language is examined.

Working with standard report templates, participants are given the tools to prepare effective and readable reports so they can be efficiently and effectively digested once submitted.

The FIU CONNECT (Terrorist Financing) training program provides detailed case studies about the diverse resourcing methods used by terrorist organisations around the world. Methods on how financial institutions can bolster their defences and prevent misuse by people or entities linked to terrorism are explored in this program.

This course has been developed by intelligence community professionals.

Competent financial institutions and banking regulators around the world describe trade-based money laundering as one of the more effective methods of laundering the proceeds of crime or financing terrorism.

FIU CONNECT (Trade-Based Money Laundering) prepares bank staff to bolster defences against illicit international trade practices and identify the patterns of possible trade-based money laundering activity in order to report their concerns up the chain of command.

In collaboration with The Royal Foundation’s United for Wildlife taskforce, ManchesterCF has assembled detailed case studies, examples and red flags to advise course participants on suspicious financial patterns that may indicate the illegal trade of wildlife.
