Combating Your Institution’s Biggest Threat: Trade-Based Money Laundering (TBML)

  • When: February 19, 2016
  • Where: New York, NY
  • Venue: Millennium Broadway Hotel New York

Growth in global trade offers criminals increased opportunities to funnel billions of dollars in profits each year through complex trade-based schemes. International criminal and terrorist organizations have increasingly turned to Trade-Based Money Laundering (TBML) to conceal and legitimize their funds as this is a channel that remains untouched by the FATF’s international standards on anti-money laundering and combating terrorist financing. With regulators placing a greater emphasis on TBML and financial institutions more concerned than ever, stringent processes must be put in place to spot red flags and deter this illegal action. Are you keeping abreast of the latest trends, typologies and red flags? Is your financial institution doing all it can to monitor, analyze, detect and report TBML? Are you prepared for your regulator’s on-site examination or inspection?

Attend this interactive seminar to learn from experts why TBML should be at the top of your risk assessment, how you can identify and report this activity, and how to satisfy both regulators and law enforcement that your program is robust.
