Fighting Financial Crime in a Changed World

Keynote

Keynote

UK Finance reports that “economic crime costs the UK nearly £7 billion a year” with this figure expected to rise as fraudsters continue to use the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity to exploit both businesses and consumers alike, with sophisticated COVID-19 and lockdown themed scams.

FinCrime Futures: The EU and Brexit

Panel Discussion

Panel Discussion

The UK has already decided not to implement the 6AMLD, and in July 2020 created a new global human rights sanctions list. The government continues to implement its Economic Crime Plan, which is considering radical reforms of key elements of AML, such as Suspicious Activity Reporting. What impact will these changes have, and will the UK seek to be a global leader in financial crime reform? And how will the EU’s own AML reform programme affect UK businesses with interests in the EU? Our speakers will look at the different policy options for the UK, the EU, and what this will all mean for businesses with AML/CFT obligations.

A Step into The Regulatory Unknown: Cryptoassets, Social Media Platforms and Defence Against Terrorism Financing Suspicious Activity Reports

Keynote

Keynote

Almost two decades on from the al Qaeda terrorist attacks (9/11) the Financial War on Terrorism continues to gather pace following the introduction of a series of international counter-terrorism financing (CTF) legislative provisions. These mechanisms, especially the sanctions regime, have been able to limit the funding avenues of some terrorist groups, however the FATF stated that the funding requirements of foreign terrorist fighters presents an unprecedented threat because they only require modest amounts of funding. The unprecedented expansion of cryptoassets and social media platforms as a terrorism funding model has resulted in several states suffering from an unprecedented and concentrated wave of international terrorism.
