New $50,000 Source of Funds Declaration (SOFD) threshold in Trinidad and Tobago

In Trinidad and Tobago, for the purposes of completing a Source of Funds Declaration (SOFD)  a large transaction is now $50,000TTD according to Legal Notice No. 356 of 2019.

The Miscellaneous Provisions (Proceeds of Crime and Central Bank) Act No 22, 2019 has amended Section 55 (3C) of the Proceeds of Crime Act Chap. 11:27 (POCA) and Regulation 11 (1) of the Financial Obligations Regulations (FORs), 2010. 

It follows that your Anti-Money Laundering/Countering the Financing of Terrorism Proliferation Financing Compliance Program must be updated to reflect this change. A suspicious transaction can also be below this $50,00 threshold and reporting entities can file Suspicious Transaction Reports for transactions that fall below this amount.

What does the way you walk say about you?

I have always been teased about the way I walk. I walk quickly, I pass people by on the sidewalks as though a dog I chasing me. I am oftentimes told that I would get a speeding ticket. I simply laugh at these jokes. In response, I say that I am “on a mission”. I could be on my way to class, on my way to the office or about to meet a friend, I walk with purpose.
Increasing your walking pace by 25% was one of the confidence building exercises in the Magic of Thinking Big . The author told of the games his mother played that consisted of watching passersby and observing their walking habits. His mother advised him that there was much to learn from observing the walking habits of people. The author said that psychologists link poor posture and sluggish walking to low self confidence. Psychologists also say that our attitudes can be changed by improving our posture and by increasing our speed of movement.


The author described 3 different groups of people based on their walking patterns. The first group are the “beaten people”, they “shuffle and stumble along through their life”. The second group of people are average and so is their walk, average. The last group of people exude “superconfidence” in the words of the author. These people walk faster than average, there is a sprint in the way they walk. Their walk tells the world “ I’ve got someplace important to go, something important to do”. Moreover, it tells the onlooker that the walker will succeed at anything he is about to do. The author advised that we should “throw our shoulders back, lift up our head and walk a little faster and feel confidence grow.
