Over the last decade, mobile financial services (MFS) have been instrumental in increasing financial inclusion in developing markets. Those who previously sat outside of the traditional banking environment are now accessing financial services through mobile phones and networks of agents acting as representatives of financial service providers. This, of course, has many benefits for stakeholders - but also presents risks in terms of criminal abuse.
This course is designed to give those involved with MFS (both providers and other stakeholders) an understanding of the financial crime risks and vulnerabilities and the controls and actions that should be in place to combat these risks. The Specialist Certificate will provide the understanding and tools to manage financial crime within mobile financial services.
Essential financial crime concepts
Fundamentals of mobile financial services
Mobile financial services in practise
Mobile financial services and the risk-based approach
Mobile financial services and customer due diligence
The future of mobile financial services- advances and regulations
