Every organisation needs to have a clear understanding of its regulatory obligations, compliance duties and the expected ethical standards it needs to respect. Without this knowledge, it runs the risk of criminal, civil or administrative liability, financial loss, adverse publicity and client dissatisfaction. It is essential that all organisations, irrespective of the market in which they operate, have the knowledge and procedures in place to accommodate risk management, regulatory and legal compliance and ethical values in their business. This is even more so for the financial and banking sectors to which sophisticated and non-sophisticated legal and natural persons entrust their scarce resources.
This Module aims to provide students with the required knowledge on financial and banking compliance principles, procedures, international bodies’ guidelines and best practices from various jurisdictions. On the practical side, the Module will enable students to assess the risk of non-compliance, find ways to mitigate it, design an internal compliance function and handle ethical crises in any organisation. In order to gain a more tangible and holistic understanding of the compliance function, the Module will also examine its key responsibilities, with particular reference to the important subjects of: corporate responsibility, compliance programs, white-collar crime, ethics, data protection, whistleblowing, international economic sanctions, prevention of market abuse etc.
