Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing Training UK FCA Firms


The FCA rules require firms to have effective, proportionate and risk-based systems and controls to ensure they cannot be used for financial crime. Firms have the following core obligations: 

  1. Identify and assess the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing to which its business is subject;

  2. Appropriate systems and controls must reflect the degree of risk associated with the business and its customers;

  3. Determine appropriate CDD measures on a risk-sensitive basis, depending on the type of customer, business relationship, product or transaction; and

  4. Take into account situations and products which by their nature can present a higher risk of money laundering or terrorist financing; these specifically include correspondent banking relationships; and business relationships and occasional transactions with PEPs.
