Compliance and Anti-Money Laundering

How to be compliant with that flurry of "hot topics" ?

Formation dispensée en anglais

Nowadays, as compliance professionals, you don't simply manage regulatory risks : you also contribute to wider strategic goals of a firm.  Managing these at the same time can become a heavy challenge. The more sanctions multiply and grow, the more you have to focus to secure your KYC tools and revise your reflexes. As a result: bankers, Financial institutions' professionals, RegTechs's actors, assurances, consultancy professionals … are facing the most permanent challenge to fight against Anti-Money-Laundering.    

In 2017's and the early 2018, you are pitted to a flurry of « hot topics » : The 4th directive, ATAD, PSD2, GDPR….

We understand that you have many issues in front of you.

• How to be compliant with all those regulations ?

• How to deal with operationnal constraints imposed by those regulations and deal with the amazing costs it could represent ?

• And above all how to deal with all those challenges and respect the GDPR directive aiming to protect personnal data ? It is up to you to tackle these emerging complex stakes. 

This year’s IFE annual conference, our program will cover a variety of topics, and approaches. Speakers will debate of :

• The implementation of the Wire Transfer Regulation (WTR2)

• The developments in AML regulations

• The establishment of the UBO register

• Analysis of recent case law on the reporting of suspicions

• International financial sanctions and embargoes

• Cohabitation between the 4th Directive and the GDPR.


We don’t want to focus only on those regulatory aspects, but rather on the truly positive aspects of compliance : the ongoing opportunities for the compliance function to influence key stakeholders and outcomes in order to drive business forward.


Looking forward to welcoming you,
