Demonstrable expertise of the Wwft and Sanctions Act is a requirement for employees of a financial institution. However, following a Wwft training only makes sense if it is in line with the daily activities.
A certain degree of knowledge of the legal requirements and regulations is important for the proper execution of a customer investigation. But a client investigation is sometimes also detective work and requires a good dose of analytical ability. How do you analyze and assess the information you have about a customer? How do you come to conclusions? And not unimportantly, how do you record your conclusions?
This training serves to deepen the knowledge you already have about compliance with the Wwft and Sanctions Act, for example by following our Wwft Awareness course. During the course we help you in a practical way to go through the steps of customer research: analyze, assess, conclude and record.
This in-depth training is intended for employees who are directly involved in the execution of the Customer Due Diligence process, but is also of interest to Compliance Officers.
This in-depth course is the next step after following our Wwft Awareness course. This is a course on HBO (higher vocational education) level. There are no specific prerequisites for this course. However, we assume that you have at least a general idea of the requirements that the Wwft and Sanctions Act set for financial institutions and their employees.
Upon successful completion of the program, your understanding of the legal requirements in the area of customer due diligence under the Wwft, and the background to it, has been enhanced. You will also have been able to practice the skills you need in customer investigation.
