Founded in 2001, The Institute represents the interests of anti-money laundering and financial crime prevention professionals from any business sector subject to financial crime prevention regulations. Current members come not only from banks, insurance companies, fund managers and building societies but also a wide range of other organisations such as gaming companies, accountancy firms, law firms, foreign exchange, payments and money service businesses, estate agencies and many more.

We welcome professionals at any stage in their career development. While providing invaluable support for those in senior roles it is also important for us to develop the next generation of financial crime prevention professionals. As such we actively encourage junior members to join to further their career progression and professional development.

The Institute MLRO Mentorship Scheme is a platform to foster excellence, professional growth, and collaboration. By sharing knowledge and experience, we aim to shape tomorrow's leaders. This scheme provides a great opportunity for both seasoned professionals and emerging talent to connect, learn, and grow together.

If you're a newly appointed Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO) and a member of The Institute, our scheme offers the chance to be guided by an experienced professional. You'll gain valuable insights and practical knowledge to boost your professional development. We carefully match mentees with mentors based on factors like sector, goals, interests, and the mentor's expertise to ensure a rewarding mentorship journey.

The mentorship is structured yet flexible, encouraging organic relationships while maintaining clear goals. It starts with a comprehensive Mentorship Plan outlining objectives and learning strategies, followed by a mid-term review to assess progress. The mentorship concludes with a final review, reflecting on the achievements and learnings from the journey.
