Why our e-learning solution is a perfect fit for your compliance awareness and training obligations?

Money laundering (ML) and terrorism financing (TF) can affect any organisation. The effects of ML/TF are severe and extensive. It can create global and local impacts on businesses, economies and societies.

One of the requirements of Anti Money Laundering/Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Regulators is for firms to provide on-going AML/CFT training to their directors, officers, and employees as it is a crucial component in the management of ML/TF risk. Simply stated, everyone is exposed to ML/TF threats, and everyone needs to be cognisant of the risks. The directors, officers and employees are the most effective defence against ML/TF as they can prevent money launderers from abusing the products or services provided by the firm through enhancing awareness and enforcing an effective risk governance framework. How Mauritius is ensuring AML/CFT awareness As a reputed International Financial Centre (IFC), Mauritius has ensured that its regulatory framework incorporates the need for ongoing AML/CFT training for all stakeholders. In this context, the Financial Intelligence and Anti-Money Laundering (FIAML) Regulations 2018 state that the reporting person shall implement “an on-going training programme for its directors, officers and employees to maintain awareness of the laws and regulations relating to money laundering and terrorism financing”. This requirement has been further emphasised by the respective AML/CFT Regulators, namely the Financial Services Commission, the Bank of Mauritius, and the Financial Intelligence Unit, amongst others. As an independent consultancy firm specialised in AML/CFT compliance, Abler firmly believes that making AML/CFT training accessible to all is an important criterion towards ensuring widespread dissemination of AML/CFT awareness – and that this is best done through the medium of e-learning. Accordingly, we offer a wide range of e-learning courses, including AML/CFT, Sanctions Awareness, AML Practical Examples, AML Environmental Crime, amongst others. Significantly, our courses address a wide variety of topics that are pertinent to a broad cross-section of financial institutions (FIs) opera-ting in sectors such as banking and non-banking financial services businesses, professionals working for the Regulators, designated non-financial business professionals (DNFBPs) such as jewellers, real estate, lawyers, notaries, accountants, auditors, tax practitioners as well as entrepreneurs and other stakeholders, such as those operating under particular third-party compliance arrangements, providing ancillary services to such FIs and DNFBPs that are subject to AML/CFT compliance obligations.
