ACAMS South India Chapter Training & Networking Event: Transaction Laundering Challenges to Credit Card Industry

The ACAMS South India Chapter Training & Networking Event was successfully hosted on Thursday, 05 September. This was a golden opportunity for all locations (Chennai, Hyderabad and Bangalore) being able to co-host the local chapter event along with our Host, SBI Card & Payment Services Private Limited, Gurgaon.

The session focusing on the “Transaction Laundering Challenges to Credit Card Industry” was led by our expert Rinku Sharma, CAMS who has won a number of accolades from both industry & regulators in her continued effort in anti-money laundering (AML) including Best Financial Crime Compliance Team of the Year award at the Women in Compliance Awards in London. Most recently, she was awarded as the “January’s AML Professional of the Month (ACAMS).

The key themes explored the payment ecosystem, challenges around transaction laundering and difficulties in its detection and the various facets of regulatory focus. Examples shared both the Indian context (RBI) & International landscape (FinCEN). Other takeaways included key statistics about transaction laundering, what it indicates, upcoming digital solutions in the industry and how financial institutions could leverage from a risk-based approach & individual risk appetite. Attendees were treated to details of a number of different case studies that really brought the messages home; the “Spice syndicate” acting as a front for an online merchant, were involved in selling illegal items in disguise via their registered business.

This was a very open, honest, and interactive session, with participants raising several great questions. A special mention for our speaker, Rinku Sharma who was very appreciative of our interest and questions.
