The International Compliance Association (ICA), a leading professional body for regulatory and financial crime compliance professionals, announced it has partnered with Acuris Risk Intelligence (ARI) to offer its governance, risk, compliance, and anti-money laundering certification programs and customized training to companies in Asia Pacific.

The partnership reinforces ICA’s commitment to strengthen the knowledge and skills of the global compliance community by providing international certifications awarded in association with Alliance Manchester Business School (University of Manchester). These certifications adopt international best practices with regional insights for individuals to apply at their work and perform better.

Through ARI, ICA’s full suite of qualifications from certificates through to diploma programs will be offered to the financial community across Asia Pacific. The offering includes IBF-funded programs in Singapore. ICA qualifications can be delivered fully online with workshops delivered through virtual instructor-led tuition, in-company, and with a fully blended option.

“The new partnership with Acuris Risk Intelligence underscores the importance of Asia Pacific region to ICA”, said Helen Langton, CEO of ICA Asia Pacific. “We are committed to upskilling and developing a robust community of compliance and financial crime professionals. We are working in tandem with organizations and government agencies to deliver these training solutions as a holistic approach to future proofing the workforce. Together with Acuris Risk Intelligence, we want the same things, an informed community who ensure the very best practice is maintained in the fight against financial crime.”

The International Compliance Association is a sister company to Compliance Week. Both organizations are under the umbrella of Wilmington plc.
