Castille Institute will be running two courses, Fintech for Non-IT Professionals between the 12 and 13 March 2018 and Global Anti-Money Laundering & KYC Compliance ​between the 15 and 16 March 2018 by International Speaker Richard Barr.  

Both courses are CPE accredited with 14hrs PD and 14.5hrs Core respectively. 


Fintech for Non-IT Professionals

From start-ups all around the world, entrepreneurs are applying their creativity and technical ingenuity all along the financial services value chain. This wave of innovation promises a FinTech revolution that will change financial services for ever. For consumers and business alike there is the promise of vastly improved financial services. 

Consumers will get more choices and keener pricing. Small and medium sized businesses will gain access to new forms and lines of credit. Banks productivity will increase, transaction costs will come down, operational resilience will be better. All this will lead to a more resilient financial system with greater diversity, redundancy and depth. Most importantly financial services will become more inclusive, while people will become better connected, more informed and increasingly empowered. 

If you want to keep up-to-date in the fast changing FinTech scenario you need to understand what it is all about. And if you are a non-IT professional you need this information presented in clear non-technical terms. 

Fintech for Non-IT Professionals will be held between the 12 and 13 March 2018 and is accredited with 14hrs PD (CPE).


Global Anti-Money Laundering & KYC Compliance

In recent times regulators have shown an extremely heightened focus on AML/KYC, with huge fines being levied against global financial institutions - such as HSBC and Standard Chartered - that fail to comply with current legislation. The risks are high for financial institutions should they fail to ensure a proper screening process in their AML operations. 

The penalties for failure include not only sizeable fines against companies, but potential jail terms for individuals. And this is not about jailing the actual money launderers here – it is about the jailing of staff of the Bank, or the Custodian, or the Investment Manager who, whether because of ignorance, or just inefficiency, fails to report a suspicious event, or in some other way unwittingly aids and abets a money launderer. 

Global Anti-Money Laundering & KYC Compliance will be held between the 15 and 16 March 2018 and is accredited with 14.5hrs Core (CPE).
