45-60 minutes


Trade Based Money Laundering Training (TBML)

International trade and trade instruments have important features that make them potentially attractive vehicles to launder criminal money. The sheer volume and international nature of trade, frequent use of offshore entities such as Free Trade Zones and complex trade finance instruments create a cloak of complexity and lack of transparency that the financial criminals seek.
