Finance and Compliance
Compliance departments of banks and brokerage firms have been expanding in both size and importance over the past few years, and they are certain to keep growing for the foreseeable future. Financial institutions are putting more resources into their compliance teams to minimize the possibility of receiving fines from regulators. Many high paying jobs have been created in finance and compliance. Our programmes in anti-money laundering, financial compliance and regulation will provide with you the basic information of a job in the compliance industry and advice on how to build a successful career.
Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA), works together with the banking industry to introduce an industry-wide competency framework – Enhanced Competency Framework (ECF) on Anti-money Laundering and Counter-financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) to support talent development in AML/CFT. The syllabus will be provided by the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (HKIB) and this programme is offered for students to prepare for the ECF on AML/CFT Professional Level Examination.
Students who pass the examination with 3 years relevant work experience will be eligible to apply for Certified AML Professional (CAMLP). Please visit HKIB website (https://www.hkib.org/ ) for further information on examination arrangements.
