ASTL to hold anti-money laundering workshop

The Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL) has revealed that it will be holding an anti-money laundering (AML) workshop on Thursday 5th September.

Ray Cohen, director at Jackson Cohen Associates, will chair the event, which will cover the various stages of AML: personal liability; company obligations; ID, sanctions and PEPs; and fraud implications.

The event — which starts at 10am — will be hosted at Masthaven’s offices in Covent Garden, London, and is estimated to run for between one-and-a-half to two hours with a Q&A session to conclude.

Members of ASTL can send up to three attendees per firm and should email Kay Wooley at to book their place.

“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,” said Benson Hersch, CEO at the ASTL (pictured above).

“These workshops present an excellent opportunity for lenders to learn best practice and raise standards at their own organisations.”
