Objectives

This training aims at explaining the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules and professional obligations currently applicable to Luxembourg financial institutions and will focus on their practical implications. The training will in particular highlight the main changes and practical impacts from the 4th AML Directive and the law implementing the 4th AML Directive into Luxembourg law and those brought by the new regulation 2015/847 on information accompanying transfers of funds. The purpose of the training is also to be very practical and thus it will also focus on existing case law available, administrative practice from the CSSF and on a number of practical examples.

Content

Evolution of good and poor AML practices on the basis of the latest activity reports of the Cellule de Renseignement Financier, the CSSF’s annual report, administrative practice from the CSSF and case law precedents

Special focus throughout the training on the main changes from the 4th AML Directive and the law implementing the 4th AML Directive into Luxembourg law, as well as their practical impacts on Luxembourg legislative framework and financial institutions including i.e.:

  • the inclusion of “tax crimes”
  • mechanism of the risk based approach and the new risk factors applicable simplified and enhanced due diligence
  • more generally, description of the new requirements of the 4th AML Directive and the law implementing the 4th AML Directive into Luxembourg law, including the relevant guidelines in this field
