Current AML Risks and Trends: A Global Perspective – Insights from the Field

  • When: June 9, 2020
  • Time: 10AM-11AM ET
  • Level: All

These are uniquely challenging times. Disruption in the financial services market, caused by the COVID-19 crisis, is prompting nefarious parties to take advantage of the situation. Financial crimes, such as fraud and money laundering, have never been more in the public consciousness.

Collectively we all have a part to play in protecting the financial system, our clients and their customers. As a direct consequence of predicate financial crime proliferation, such as fraud and human trafficking, money laundering continues to increase globally. Stop money laundering and you can inhibit the predicate crimes to money laundering. As the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering tells us, money laundering is not a victimless crime.

To help you in our shared battle with money laundering and predicate crimes, in this session the presenters will provide insights on the key AML risks and trends globally, together with examples of the effective risk mitigation actions being taken by organizations.

  • To understand AML risks and trends
  • To understand how these risks differ and intersect globally
  • To learn about best practices being applied by financial institutions globally
