AML & CTF Training

EBII Group Certificate in Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing for Ghana

Managing rapidly changing multi-lateral AML/CFT and Sanctions requirements can become challenging due to the evolving nature of AML/CFT and Sanctions.

This 5 day certification training is targeted at the Ghanaian market and gives participants both the practical skills and regulatory knowledge to understand the nature of money laundering, sanctions and terrorist financing, how money is laundered and your responsibilities when criminal offences are committed, best practices to prevent it happening and Ghana’s relevant laws and regulations.

West African terrorist bodies and the financing of their activities has generated a focus on cross-border transactions. The financing of both drug and people trafficking are issues that Ghanainan and global regulators continuously work to prevent and Ghana’s AML regulations now extend to the insurance, legal, accounting, real estate, gaming, extractive and religious sectors, in addition to its banks.
