This e-learning course covers anti-money laundering and combating terrorist financing within the laws and guidelines of Jersey.
It is intended to familiarise ALL employees with the process of money laundering, the criminal business used to disguise the true origin and ownership of illegal cash and the laws that make it a crime.
“Money laundering” is the process that criminals use to disguise the true origin and ownership of cash by introducing it into legitimate enterprises. The problem is huge.
The estimated amount of money laundered is approximately 2%-5% of global GDP, or $800 billion – $2 trillion annually.
Terrorism financing refers to activities that provides financing or financial support to individual terrorists or terrorist groups. A government that maintains a list of terrorist organizations normally will also pass laws to prevent money laundering being used to finance those organizations. This prompted governments around the globe to pass laws prohibiting large cash payments or, at the least, requiring such payments to be reported. These laws created the need for criminals to conceal the true source of the money or to “launder” it.
Jersey is no exception and the financial regulator treats any attempt to launder money as extremely serious offences, resulting in penalties of up to 5 years imprisonment and unlimited fines.
