These findings provide valuable insight and guidance to educators, practitioners, and other related parties that they have to give emphasise on these skills such as by providing training to keep the transaction monitoring analysts of the banking institutions updated with the new developments on investigative skills and enhance on the critical thinking skills for effective identification of money laundering activities.
