Is the 4th EU AML Directive conducive to a risk-based approach, or overly prescriptive?

AML regulatory frameworks worldwide create many challenges for compliance professionals that can lead to banks and financial institutions adopting a reactive approach to compliance, rather than a proactive approach to combating financial crime.

This is evidenced in the forthcoming Future Financial Crime Report, produced by LexisNexis Risk Solutions for the British Bankers’ Association. The initial findings of this report will be discussed in this webinar.

Learning Objectives

  • Outlining what banks consider the most concerning future financial crime risks and considering how can they address them
  • Reviewing wholesale de-risking as a viable compliance measure
  • Detailing how institutions can re-risk prudently in response to the new opportunities presented by a changing sanctions landscape
