  • When: 24 January 2019

  • Venue: betahaus
    Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23

The EU FinTech sector is agile and fast-paced. While FinTechs spend a lot of time developing their innovative products and customer experience, some must also meet their local anti-financial crime (AFC) regulatory requirements and safeguard themselves against financial crime risks – along with their customers.

This full-day workshop will equip FinTech compliance staff, and those AFC professionals seeking to work with FinTechs in the future, with the knowledge and skills to build a robust AFC compliance programme.

We’ll cover:

  • The types of financial crime risks faced by FinTechs
  • The Anti-Financial Crime (AFC) regulatory obligations that may apply to FinTechs
  • How to undertake a FinTech financial crime risk assessment
  • Key components of a FinTech AFC compliance control framework
  • Real-life financial crime case studies involving FinTechs, illustrating the risks and countermeasures taken
