SFCCA and CISI Partnership on AML Certification

The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) and the Singapore Financial Crime Compliance Association (SFCCA) are collaborating on a dual certification programme. As part of this collaboration, the CISI’s jurisdiction specific AML and CFT Professional Assessments will be a mandatory part of the Associate and Professional courses offered by SFCCA.

“It is great that individuals get the opportunity to get an AML certificate with the CISI through their SFCCA programmes. The CISI thrives when collaborating and seeks to give all candidates the opportunity to obtain globally recognised and portable learning”  Helena Wilson Chartered MSCI

“We are delighted to partner with CISI UK to add value to our Singapore focussed Private Banking & Securities, Financial Crime Compliance courses. As a former student of CISI, I am well aware of their focussed training approach. All SFCCA courses now incorporate a CISI AML/CFT regulatory training module including for Hong Kong.” Dr. Rohan Bedi, FICA, MD SFCCA
