Why you should attend?

Understanding customer finances are key elements of both anti money laundering and player protection. Understanding whether a player can afford the level of play or determining whether the source of funds and source of wealth are from a legitimate source are key to both protecting the customer and the operator. Obtaining and understanding the necessary information and evidence is something that teams across the organisation need to be skilled in to avoid adding unnecessary friction to the customer journey for the majority while focusing on compliance for the smaller but important high-risk customers. This course will help you deliver against both of these objectives.

Who Should attend?

Managers and team members involved in the customer journey. These include compliance and AML, customer risk, player protection and affordability, vulnerable customers and due diligence.

How much does it cost?

This training is suitable for whole teams. Contact Matthew Holley for a quote.

Assessing Financial Vulnerability and Financial Risk. What our delegates say.

” Working with Neil from Rightway Compliance has been a great experience from the very start. 

As a business that takes its AML obligations seriously, Mansion wanted to bring the best knowledge possible to our teams to assist with complex cases and make sure we manage risks associated with online gaming to an exceptional standard. 

Through carefully thought out materials and case studies, Neil passed on a considerable amount of valuable skills, insight and information to our Due Diligence team members and management, which is already paying dividends in the effectiveness of our AML procedures. 

During a difficult time, Neil was able to adapt the training to suit remote delivery to members across different jurisdictions. By continuously passing on a wealth of knowledge gained through years of experience, all Mansion staff involved had only positive things to say and are ecstatic with how this exercise has aided their development and skills. 

We hope that this will not be the end of the road with our relationship with Rightway given the value they have added already, and would encourage any other operators within the gaming sphere, or businesses with similar AML obligations, to reach out to Rightway to assist with their operations.”
