Good compliance involves knowing the rules, the markets, products and transactions, but it also relies on being able to develop the ability to make swift recommendations based on a robust, reasoned argument. The ability to deal with individuals at all levels of your organisation is central to this, from those in client and market-facing positions to those sitting in the boardroom. This module will demonstrate techniques for developing or enhancing such an approach within the context of realistic business scenarios and will discuss how to achieve a best in class approach to developing a compliance function.

The module will then go on to explore Compliance Monitoring - something that is easily done badly and is difficult to do well. This module will demonstrate how to conduct compliance monitoring in a way which will be compelling to regulators, senior management and auditors alike.

This module can be taken as a standalone course or as part of the whole Diploma in Compliance, AML & Financial Crime. The Diploma consists of four modules totalling twelve days of interactive workshop learning, interspersed by examinations and assignments.
