AGRC Certificate in Sanctions Compliance

ΠΕΡΙΓΡΑΦΗ

Internal Sanctions have become the new norm in the financial services, as they have now been established as the chosen foreign policy tool instead of military action. Events in Ukraine since 2014 have initiated a series of sanctions against Russia that have intensified after the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. The extent by which financial sanctions have been used in recent years has raised the alarm for all financial institutions and has necessitated a good understanding of how this foreign policy functions and the resulting effects.

This certification programme aims to provide individuals with the relevant background, tools and information required to hone their skills as AML or compliance professional working for a bank, investment company, financial services provider, or law firm. This programme will provide participants with a solid and practical understanding of the motives and rationale behind sanctions decisions, the resulting effects, and the consequences experienced by targeted individuals and entities and those doing business with them, either directly or indirectly. Moreover, by undertaking this programme, participants will be better prepared for the AGRC Certificate in Sanctions Compliance examination.
