About this learning event

This event is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the newly implemented regulations and oversight mechanisms in combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT). Our focus is on practical, operational applications that will empower you to understand how to effectively combat ML and TF. 

Key Topics Covered:

  • Assessing ML and TF Risks: Learn how to evaluate and mitigate the risks associated with money laundering and terrorism financing effectively, determining the frequency and intensity of onsite supervision.
  • Cryptocurrency Regulation and Supervision: Understand the intricacies of regulating and supervising cryptocurrencies and performing risk assessments for Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs).
  • Best Practices: Discover industry best practices for implementing AML/CFT measures, ensuring compliance and safeguarding of financial system.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations in the EU will necessitate substantial changes in legislation, regulatory practices, and compliance frameworks at the national level. While these measures aim to create a more secure and transparent financial system, they will also impose new responsibilities and challenges on national authorities and market participants. Ensuring a smooth transition and effective implementation will be critical for achieving the intended benefits of these regulatory frameworks.

Participants will gain actionable insights to enhance compliance and safeguard the financial system. The sessions will be highly interactive, with participants actively involved in practical activities and the content dynamically focused on the needs of the audience.
