Virtual Risk Based Approach to Supervising on AML/CFT and Financial Inclusion

Monday, December 14, 2020 - Thursday, December 17, 2020

This program is not open for registration. Please contact Jennifer Singh, if you are interested in this program.

Program Objectives

This program aims to enhance supervisory skills in combatting anti-money laundering and financing of terrorism and covers the latest FATF Standards which include amongst other things, national risk assessment, the assessment on effectiveness implementation and the importance of reconciling financial inclusion with effective, risk based AML/CFT defences. 

This program is designed to enhance participants’ understanding and gain a practical perspective on the Risk Based Approach (RBA) to supervisory activities relating to AML/CFT. During this program we explain and discuss key principles, best practices and most recent guidance produced by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), while discussing its applicability through real life case examples and case studies. We aim at helping regulators and supervisors in Rwanda to apply these guidelines in their daily supervisory activities, at the same time as embracing gender equality and helping participants to tackle common implementation challenges. While AML/CFT principles are common for all financial services businesses, the programme takes account of the fact that the risks – and therefore implementation issues - differ between sectors.

Target Audience

The program provides an introduction to AML/CFT for those less familiar with such regimes, but is also designed for middle level and experienced officials involved directly or indirectly in regulatory, supervisory and enforcement functions that control money laundering and terrorist financing activities.

Registration for this program is by invitation only.

This program will be held virtually in partnership with:
