How to combat money laundering in a changing world


Today, financial institutions are faced with increasingly complex challenges when it comes to implementing effective anti-money laundering (AML) compliance systems. The advanced digitalisation of services and growing volume of data alongside a steady stream of regulatory changes and increasingly sophisticated criminal networks contribute to a constantly evolving landscape and higher vulnerability to illicit activity. During this roundtable, participants will learn about how money laundering has changed, typical pitfalls and the future of AML compliance. We will hear both from traditional banks and Fintechs about their varying perspectives, specific risks and challenges.
