The aim of the ACAMS Luxembourg Chapter is to provide a local regional platform for AML/CTF experts and compliance professionals in Luxembourg to advance their professional knowledge and skills, and share their experience in matters concerning the prevention of local and international money laundering and terrorism financing.
Specific aims are to:
- Provide local perspective and input into regional and international standards for the detection and prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing.
- Provide an informal networking platform through which AML/CTF professionals can learn and share their experience with peers locally.
- Promote awareness of the effects of money laundering and terrorist financing and the need to combat it.
The Chapter will act as a resource for individuals employed in Financial Institutions and related businesses in Luxembourg to grow their AML network and knowledge.
The Chapter’s strategy to promote and facilitate this will include:
- Regular meetings open to all members who will be invited to provide AML topics of their choice for discussion.
- Networking evenings with an AML theme and speaker(s), open to both members and non-members.
- A local Chapter site with a discussion forum available for members to ask questions and discuss AML matters, particularly items affecting the Luxembourg market.
- The publication and promotion of local AML developments and events.
- Social gatherings for members to meet new faces and discuss AML related matters in a more informal atmosphere.
Upcoming Luxembourg Chapter learning events will be announced soon.
