What is this seminar about?

The fight against money laundering and terrorist financing continues to be an important global priority. This new seminar will address the ongoing efforts to combat financial crime, including the nefarious effects of bribery and corruption, with the aim of assisting compliance with applicable international standards. The seminar will focus on the Recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which include cooperation and exchange of information between the public and private sectors as well as between EU Member States (and beyond). It will then examine developments in EU law, including issues of enforcement and effectiveness. Proposals to adapt the 4th EU Directive on Anti-Money Laundering in view of recent (terrorist) events will be discussed, as recent changes in the EU legislation must be implemented into national laws as soon as possible.

How will it help you?
By the end of this seminar, you should have:

  • a good understanding of the current efforts in fighting financial crime;
  • an update on recent developments in European legislation and enforcement concerning anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing.

Who will benefit most?
All compliance and anti-money laundering or counter terrorist financing officers, involved in the actions to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing in banks as well as other financial institutions will find this seminar to be of great interest. In addition, regulators, lawyers, accountants, auditors, consultants and practitioners will find the seminar to be highly relevant to their daily work.
