Banks and other Financial Institutions are attractive to money launderers because of the many and varied financial services they offer, including a worldwide financial network.
Financial Institutions can take deposits, handle large amounts of currency and move it quickly.
Funds deposited at a bank provide the appearance of legitimacy. Furthermore, they can use the services of banks located in financial haven countries, many of which have strict secrecy rules and may not reveal customer information to law enforcement authorities.

BUT: While banks can be used by money launderers, they can also be used by law enforcement to identify and stop money launderers, because:
a) Banks’ procedures create an audit trail, which can be followed
b) Records of account activity are created, which can be reviewed by authorities.

However, money launderers can and do take advantage of inconsistent banking laws and regulations to launder money.
The Kenya Institute of Bankers will be conducting AML/CFT and KYC senior course from July, 19th to 20th 2018 at The Nairobi Safari Club.
This course is intended to enable participants grasp the gravity of AML/CFT & KYC Compliance in the Financial Services sector today in order to proactively combat money laundering by being vigilant of any unusual activity in banking transactions.
The course will also seek to explore the initiatives currently being taken globally to combat money laundering activities, and how these challenges may affect all of us as individuals, as employers and the national economy at large.
