Shinhan Bank introduced a corporate membership service of the world's largest Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) for the first time in Korea to strengthen the expertise of those in charge of anti-money laundering.
ACAMS is considered the world's most trusted anti-money laundering business certificate issuer and the industry's leading experts' association with more than 80,000 members in 175 countries.
With the introduction of ACAMS corporate membership service, Shinhan Bank can quickly provide working-level officials in related departments with information on recent trends, including guidelines from international organizations related to anti-money laundering and economic sanctions, laws and systems of each country, and cases of sanctions against regulators.
In addition to operating ACAMS corporate membership services, Shinhan Bank is also expanding its education program of "Thomson Reuters," which was introduced last year to enhance basic understanding of anti-money laundering and economic sanctions by employees performing global tasks, from 600 last year to 1,650 domestic and foreign officials this year.
A bank official said, "Shinhan Bank will continue to cultivate experts who have secured global capabilities by utilizing the best educational institution program in the globally recognized anti-money laundering sector," adding, "We will also be able to meet the level of expectations for enhanced expertise of those in charge of anti-money laundering at domestic and foreign regulators."
