Published: Thu Feb 25 2010

Edcomm Banker’s Academy recently launched a free tutorial that provides Anti Money Laundering (AML) training for banks and financial institutions located in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Focus on Anti Money Laundering for Hong Kong offers an overview of the AML laws and regulations that are specific to financial institutions in this Eastern Asian country.

Money laundering in Hong Kong is a considerable problem due to the vulnerability created by low taxes, a simplified tax system and a sophisticated banking system. Therefore, the Monetary Authority in Hong Kong issued the Anti Money Laundering Guidelines, which reflect the revised Financial Action Task Force’s Forty Recommendations on Money Laundering. The guidelines are used by financial institutions to monitor compliance through on-site inspections and other means. Hong Kong law enforcement agencies also provide training and feedback on suspicious transaction reporting.

Focus on Anti Money Laundering, from Edcomm Banker’s Academy, teaches bank employees about AML laws in their country and familiarizes them with their company’s own policies and procedures. Through this interactive course, students learn everything they need to know to detect and prevent money laundering. Focus on Anti Money Laundering can be customized to meet the needs of every Bank, Credit Union or Money Services Business (MSB). Each course is regularly updated to include changing laws and policies. Recognizing that money laundering can occur anywhere and everywhere, Edcomm Banker’s Academy is prepared to create a course for any country in need.
