Over the past years, the anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) landscape has evolved and expanded. As regulators around the world continue their crackdown on banks, the AML/CFT enforcement regime is expected to intensify.
Recently, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) issued its updated Financial Action Task Force (FATF) list of jurisdictions with AML/CFT deficiencies. The changes made are expected to profoundly affect the risk-based due diligence of U.S. financial institutions. With this, and other significant developments, it becomes more essential for companies to keep up with the evolving regulatory paradigm. Proactive steps must be taken to mitigate exposure to financial crime risks.
Join a panel of thought leaders and professionals as they provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the latest trends and developments in AML/CFT enforcement. Speakers, among other things, will discuss the best compliance practices that can help your clients cope with the changing legal climate.
Key issues covered in this course are:
• AML/CFT Enforcement: Latest Trends and Developments
• FinCEN's 2019 Priorities
• Identifying and Addressing Red Flags
• Best Compliance Practices
• What Lies Ahead
