Trade Based Money Laundering is “the next frontier” in international money laundering law enforcement.
As the financial community becomes more experienced in recognising and preventing traditional money laundering methods, such as large cash deposits, criminals have explored other means to scrub their ill gotten gains. International trade and trade instruments are often used vehicles to launder criminal money.
Businesses involved in international trade need to be vigilant to ensure their trades are not compromised by criminal elements infiltrating their organisations.
Banks need to be aware of the risks to their reputation should their services be found to have facilitated the process of money-laundering.
The sheer volume and international nature of trade can create a cloak of complexity and lack of transparency that financial criminals seek to exploit. This course has been designed by subject matter experts to provide an overview of trade-based money laundering (TBML) risks. It introduces the core principles and features of TBML and outlines the various methods and techniques used by criminals. It gives a clear explanation of various TBML typologies and supplies practical insights into how to identify AML red flags.
