EIMF | AML/CFT Typologies: Risk Based Approach vs Typology Based Approach

This Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) Typologies webinar will explore the fundamental concepts of two distinct but interconnected approaches: the Risk-Based Approach (RBA) and the Typology-Based Approach (TBA).


In the ever-evolving landscape of financial crimes, it is essential for professionals in the AML/CFT domain to be well-versed in these strategies.


The webinar will delve into the key differences between these two approaches, their respective benefits, and challenges, and how they can be effectively integrated to enhance an institution’s ability to detect and prevent illicit financial activities but with an emphasis on the “Typology Based Approach”.


By the end of this webinar, participants will have gained a comprehensive understanding and will be equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to make informed decisions in their AML/CFT efforts.


Let’s embark on this journey to better comprehend AML/CFT Typologies and the critical distinctions between the Risk-Based and Typology-Based Approaches.
