A key concern and significant risk for financial institutions remain the possibility of unknowingly becoming complicit in money laundering actions, where illegitimate money is moved into legitimate institutions. In order to mitigate such risk, FIs have strengthened their internal control systems by increasingly making use of Know Your Customer (KYC) and Customer Due Diligence (CDD) requirements, as part of their anti-money laundering (AML) strategies.
About the Certificate
