Event Synopsis:

Money laundering and terrorist's financial activities have wreaked havoc on the global financial system. As more sophisticated and new modalities are used to execute complex money laundering schemes to help fund terrorists, finance directors and compliance officers will need to work closely with the organization’s governing board and corporate counsel to plug up any leaks which could open the door to illicit activity.

In a two-hour Live webcast assembled by the Knowledge Group, a panel of AML/CTF specialists and thought leaders will discuss the latest money laundering and terrorist financing trends and typologies in banking and finance. In addition to a walk through on AML/CTF regulations, the speakers will offer valuable insights on how to apply international best practices and develop effective strategic tools in strengthening your risk reduction process to prevent the catastrophic impact of money laundering and terrorist financing.
