Executive Development Program on Anti-money Laundering
Imarticus recently concluded its very first executive development program on Anti money laundering on 28th and 29th July at Novotel Hotel, Bangalore. The 2-day workshop was conducted by AML/KYC experts Ratan Postwalla and Sayak Bhanja. The workshop saw active participation from functional executives and managers from Societe General and Viteos. The program was really well received and saw a great deal of engagement from the 10 participants. We garnered a 4+ rating from participants on both trainers and content, with 80% of participants willing to recommend our workshop go their friends and colleagues.
Three case studies were seamlessly embedded into the curriculum and discussed in detail. These included an Asset Management company wishing to establish a prime brokerage relationship for its hedge fund unit, an overseas mining company wishes to engage the bank to underwrite an IPO, among others. Here is a sneak peak at one of the many case studies used.
Participants are provided with extensive handouts with exclusive course materials. Key takeaways from the workshop were encapsulated in brief that would serve as a ready reckoner for the serious practitioner. Here is a sneak peak at the participant manual.
Participants were provided with ample reference reading material from FATF and ACAMS to better acquaint them with policies and standards; and gain a more holistic understanding of regulations and recommendations to combat money laundering.
