    Meeting the Moment

    With heightened geopolitical volatility, swiftly changing sanctions regimes and emerging financial crime threats, the Middle East and North Africa form a globally important region poised to meet and overcome significant AFC challenges. Sizeable geopolitical shifts add urgency to the already complex evolution of sanctions. Also vying for compliance professionals’ time and attention: New financial crime threats posed by virtual assets, the renewed challenge of global terrorism financing and the latest trends in frauds and scams.

     

    Perfectly positioned to support with tailored content that provides practical, forward-thinking ideas and solutions, ACAMS empowers AML/AFC practitioners to grasp new opportunities while dealing effectively with a growing array of risks and threats. From Nov. 12-13 at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai, connect with peers, top regulators and financial industry leaders for the latest guidance to suit your legal, regulatory and commercial circumstances as you lead across the region.
