Combating Trade-Based Money Laundering

  • When: November 7, 2018
  • Time: 12PM – 2PM ET
  • Level: All

Trade-based money laundering (TBML) remains a potent problem for AML professionals, with estimates that hundreds of billions of dollars annually are being laundered through increasingly sophisticated schemes. However, armed with knowledge of common typologies – and red flags – indicating possible trade-based laundering conspiracies, compliance professionals can mitigate the risks of the illicit proceeds entering their institutions, as well as investigate and resolve alerts suggesting potential TBML activity. This webinar details practical strategies for combating, detecting and reporting TBML.

Learning Objectives

  • Reviewing recent cases when TBML was used to legitimize criminal proceeds from trafficking in products such as drugs, art, endangered wildlife and black-market commodities
  • Utilizing data analytics and other tools to identify red flags such as potential invoice manipulation, usage of high-risk transshipment points and "carousel" transactions
  • Creating risk-based "Know Your Importer/Exporter" anti-TBML models based on factors such as geography, ownership structure, product lines and transactional activity
