The Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL) will be holding an Anti Money Laundering (AML) Workshop on Thursday 5th September.

The workshop is being chaired by Ray Cohen of Jackson Cohen Associates and will cover AML basics, including the three stages of AML; personal liability; company obligations; ID, sanctions and PEPs; and fraud implications.

It is being hosted at the office of Masthaven Bank in Covent Garden, London, and will start at 10am. The workshop is estimated to run for between 1.5 and 2 hours with a Q&A session to conclude.

ASTL members can send up to 3 attendees per firm and should email Kay Woolley at to book their place on the workshop.  Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Benson Hersch, pictured, CEO at the ASTL, says:

“Knowledge is power and it’s important for businesses in the bridging industry to take every opportunity to build their own personal, professional and institutional knowledge. These workshops present an excellent opportunity for lenders to learn best practice and raise standards at their own organisations.”
