Preventing and detecting financial crime is evolving to be a primary challenge in 2019, the impact of which extends well beyond monetary losses to reputation and brand, employee morale, business relations, as well as regulatory censure.

Recent cases from the past year have shown us that regulators are increasingly focusing not only on whether processes are followed, but also on the quality of judgments. So when it comes to your financial crime priorities for the year ahead, what activities are at the top of your agenda? Attend this session for a high-level update on the current trends and challenges, including:

  • Emerging trends in cross border investigations, including the extraterritorial impact of S.2 notices
  • Examining the impact of the Law Commission’s review on AML and the inter-relationship of proceeds of crime and suspicious activity reporting
