ECOFEL’s Corporate Vehicles and Financial Products Workshop Series

From October 4th to 8th, 2021, the ECOFEL hosted a successful 5-day, interactive Corporate Vehicles and Financial Products (CorFIN) workshop series with participants from FIUs in the East and Southern Africa region of the Egmont Group. Experts lead FIU analysts through presentations, case studies, and practical exercises. Participants learned about and refined their understanding on conducting advanced operational analysis involving corporate vehicles and financial products.

By workshop’s last day, participants could categorize and define corporate vehicles and financial products, recognize how they may be used in money laundering schemes, and analyze the financial flows linked to these vehicles and products. The ECOFEL welcomed the engagement of all the participants.

The ECOFEL would further like to extend its appreciation to Mark van Thiel and Luis Afonso, who expertly led the course. The ECOFEL also thanks to the ESAAMLG Secretariat for supporting this event.
