Webinar - The Critical Role of a Money Laundering Professional

Money laundering is an integral part of many, if not most, of crime and terror finance. From local crime to tax avoidance to transnational networks, the source of money will be masked to conceal the source and at the same time serve to make the money usable in the legitimate worlds of business and finance. This requires the professionals involved to exercise expertise, business acumen, and power influence. This course will describe the types of money laundering professionals and how they serve to bridge the hidden and illicit sources of money with the real world, often remaining invisible themselves. We will use case studies to demonstrate the levels at which they operate (local, national/transnational, political) and the challenges they face in accomplishing their criminal goals.
