ACAMS, AML for FinTechs


AML Training delivered for FinTechs, by FinTechs

The EU FinTech sector is agile and fast-paced. While FinTechs spend a lot of time developing their innovative products and customer experience, they must also meet AML regulatory requirements and safeguard against financial crime risks – to protect themselves, and their customers.

This online training provides FinTechs with the knowledge and practical steps to build a robust Anti-Financial Crime plan for their organisation, and the confidence to implement this plan.
