Certified Compliance Professional VENUE: VIRTUAL/ZOOM

The Risk Management Academy would be organizing this Program in November 2019 in Lagos, Nigeria.

Participants will obtain a clear understanding of and appreciation for the necessity of a strong and well-equipped compliance function within any financial services institution.

Through lecture, class exercises, highly interactive participation, and case studies, participants will review the need for financial services regulation, the markets/participants/institutions/instruments over which regulation proceeds, the use of the compliance function as a risk mitigator, the various methods and approaches to compliance with regulatory requirements, establishment of a well-functioning compliance department, and the skills required to succeed as a compliance officer.

Through intense analysis of specific cases concerning compliance and ethical lapses, money laundering, rule violations, delegates will obtain keen insights to reduce the risk of regulatory and compliance problems and to foster a culture of compliance within their own firms.
