The ACAMS Nordics Chapter aims to serve members from the entire Nordic region and will be co-located in Copenhagen and Stockholm.
At the founding meeting, on 16 September 2015, ACAMS Nordics Chapter co-chairs, Karl-Johan Karlsson and Marie Lundberg, together with chapter board members Julia Jensen, Tiffany L. F. Ikkala, Håkan Svensson and ACAMS Head of Europe and CIS, Angela Salter, posed for a celebratory photograph. The founding board has since been joined by Migdalia Rojas.
The board directors possess a diverse mix of skills and experience from a range of organisations, including banks, consultancies, funds management, LEAs, MSBs, FinTechs and tech companies, and are currently located or have recently worked closely with several areas of the Nordics, ensuring good member representation across the region.
Nordics Chapter Mission
The ACAMS Nordics Chapter will support ACAMS in its mission to advance the professional knowledge, skills and experience of those dedicated to the prevention and detection of money laundering and financial crime. In addition, the chapter will:
- Provide a Nordic perspective and input into regional and international standards for the detection and prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing
- Offer networking platforms through which anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CTF) professionals can collaborate with their peers throughout the Nordic countries.
- The chapter will also deliver Nordic-focused member events on a regular basis and welcomes inquiries from potential speakers, trainers and sponsors.
All ACAMS Nordics Chapter events will take place in English.
