Money laundering update

Release notes

 Money laundering and how you can prevent it

From Monday the 11th of May the programme ‘Money laundering and how you can prevent it’ will be updated. 

The introductory video ‘The perils of money laundering: a warning’ will be replaced with a more modern video, ‘A routine walk to work’  which will be loaded to the existing programmes on the ComplianceServe site. This innovative new video takes a scenario that everyone can relate to and challenges them to look at it from another angle, as this can change people’s perceptions of what’s around them. People will be surprised when they see how money laundering can be lurking just around the corner!  

All users already registered will continue to see the old video. New users registered to this programme will only see the updated video. 

NB: If you require any further assistance, please contact the HelpDesk on 0844 800 3316, or by email at helpdesk@unicorntraining.com and they’ll be happy to assist.

Content news April 2015

It’s been a busy few weeks, and so there’s a lot to tell you about…
Treating Customers Fairly and Conduct Risk Update
As advised in the January update conduct risk is a hot topic for the FCA and regulated firms right now. To reflect this we’ve reworked our current ‘Treating customers fairly and conduct risk’ programme. The updated programme will focus in more detail on conduct risk, and explore the role of TCF within it. Reflecting the new focus, the title has changed to ‘Conduct risk and treating customers fairly’.  
This new title is currently live.
Introduction to the FCA
Intro to the FCA has had an update to bring the module up-to-date and give a more accurate reflection of the FCA in 2015.

A&P and MCOBs:
Having been reviewed by our subject matter expert, the suggested changes are now with our partner for these titles, The CML, who like to review the suggested changes before we put them live.
Regular updates
We regularly review and update all our titles to make sure they’re technically accurate and fit-for-purpose. In the last month, the following titles were reviewed and are live:  
  • Complaints and regulated firms
  • Whistleblowing with confidence
  • MLRO Practical guidelines for money laundering prevention staff  

Next titles up for review are: 
  • How to comply with the data protection act
