Bankers Committee members pay N 123,465.00 only

Background

In recent times, the world has experienced a phenomenal growth of financial services and activities. This growth has led to increased cross border activities, with enhanced global financial intermediation. Unfortunately, this development has been accompanied by a spate of transnationally-organized crimes, including Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (ML/TF). Given the potential negative impact of AML/CFT infractions on the socioeconomic development of any economy, financial institutions are known to have significant roles to play in complying with these regulations and in developing appropriate mechanisms to tackle this menace, minimise negative impact, and restore confidence in the system. Also, best practice requires that financial institutions undergo periodic self-assessments of their compliance status to the AML/CFT regulations, in line with statutory guidelines and requirements, to bridge identified gaps, address inherent challenges, and avert likely consequences and sanctions. In furtherance to this and ensure compliance to statutory guidelines, organizations must understand these statutory requirements and upscale their institutional capacities to effectively and efficiently monitor and manage likely impact of non-compliance for a strong viable financial system, unsusceptible to internal and external threats.
