ACAMS Netherlands Chapter: Creating a better understanding of Trade-based Money Laundering
In December 2020, the Financial Action Task Force and the Egmont Group of FIUs published a report with the latest trends and developments on Trade-Based Money Laundering (TBM). TBML is a complex method of money laundering which can be difficult to recognise. It is widely used to disguise and move criminal proceeds alongside legitimate trade transactions.
Our key speaker for this webinar is Tamara Pollard-Maijer. She is an AML-specialist of the Anti Money Laundering Centre of the Netherlands (AMLC) and as co-lead of the FATF/Egmont TBML Project, she was closely involved in the latest TBML-publications of the FATF and the Egmont Group.
The aim of this webinar is to create a better understanding of TBML and the different forms of this method of money laundering. On the basis of cases, Tamara will also explain the challenges of detecting TBML and how to deal with this in daily practice. Together with you, we want to make this an interactive webinar.
The webinar is sponsored by the Anti Money Laundering Centre of the Netherlands. The AMLC is a partnership of public and private parties with the ambition of ongoing improvement in the national and international fight against money laundering.
Through broad cooperation the AMLC lifts the combating of money laundering to a higher plan, thereby enhancing its efforts to protect the financial system. Via the deployment of the expertise and unique access to data of the AMLC and by quickly identifying new trends and developments, the AMLC contributes to the realisation of targeted, high-impact interventions with preventive effect. By doing this, expertise and intelligence of the highest quality in the field of AML are combined, developed and shared.
Together with its partners the AMLC fulfils a strategic pioneering role, nationally and internationally, thereby initiating and assisting others with operational projects and complex investigations.
