Legal Eye Launches Source Of Funds/Source Of Wealth Training Course for Risk and Compliance Professionals

Legal Eye, a leading provider of compliance and risk management solutions for law firms, is excited to introduce its latest offering: a bespoke Source of Funds (SOF) and Source of Wealth (SOW) training course designed exclusively for risk and compliance professionals. This live and interactive one-hour online training session is tailored to meet the specific needs of your firm, ensuring that your staff and fee earners are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate complex compliance challenges.

In today’s ever-evolving regulatory landscape, staying ahead of money laundering, terrorist financing, proliferation financing, and other compliance issues is paramount. Legal Eye’s SOF/SOW Training Course provides a comprehensive overview of these critical topics, enabling participants to enhance their risk assessment processes and meet regulatory requirements with confidence.

The latest Law Society AML Conference laid out SoF and SoW as a key and burning topic for all compliance professionals to be on top of. To that end the Legal Eye team have curated a course that will be tailored and delivered to firms in a modular and bite sized format that will cover key areas and nuances around this complex topic.

Key highlights of the training session include:
