CTF and TBML: Identifying Questionable Transactions within Global Trade Businesses

  • When: May 16, 2018
  • Time: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET

One of the largest and most pervasive methods for laundering the proceeds of crime is trade-based money laundering (TBML). As a result, understanding and disrupting the flow of funds for terrorist organizations through trade-based money laundering has become fundamental for global financial institutions. This webinar will provide lessons-learned from recent case studies and practical strategies to help financial institutions stop money launderers and terrorist financers from using global trade to move illicit funds into the legitimate economy.

Learning Objectives

  • Reviewing emerging terrorist financing and TBML trends to identify monitoring challenges and ensure adequate resourcing to meet them
  • Training staff to recognize transactional TBML red flags for terrorist financing such as under- and over-invoicing and accommodation trading
  • Deploying advanced analytical and statistical techniques to elevate CTF and TBML comprehensiveness and efficiency
