KYC/AML courses

Companies specializing in conducting activities related to conducting transactions through funds and property are required to master all the nuances of countering money laundering, as well as the financing of terrorism.

Since March 2020, amendments have been made at the legislative level to the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorist Activities.
