Regulators' focus on anti-money laundering (AML) laws seems as high as it has ever been. As a part of their robust enforcement actions to address financial crimes, government authorities have required financial institutions to establish AML compliance programs that will detect and prevent illegal activities. However, setting up these precautions leads to another set of challenges.
To avoid risks while ensuring compliance, financial institutions must be aware of the recent trends and updates surrounding this area of law and develop an efficient and effective AML compliance program.
In this Live Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the regulatory issues concerning AML compliance programs. Speakers will also present the existing penalties, best compliance strategies, and practical tips on how to mitigate the risks surrounding this significant topic.
Key topics include:
