Hong Kong / Singapore, April 20 (Korea Bizwire) — As part of its ongoing effort to help compliance professionals meet evolving regulatory expectations in the Asia Pacific region, ACAMS will present a one-of-a-kind training and networking event for its 12th Annual AML & Anti-Financial Crime Conference – APAC. Beginning on April 26th, attendees at this two-day, fully virtual event will have the opportunity to learn best practices from the region’s leading subject-matter experts and hear what lies ahead in the fight against financial crime from high-level regulators, including officials with the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) of the Philippines

In panel discussions and roundtable talks, conference speakers will share thought leadership and offer guidance on a spectrum of issues, including deploying artificial intelligence in transactions surveillance, developing an AML-Conduct Agenda and Risk Tolerance Statement framework, disrupting illicit wildlife trafficking, identifying the misuse of legal persons using proxy and nominee accounts.

In between sessions, attendees will also have the opportunity to network with their peers in the conference’s Virtual Exhibit Hall. 

“With monetary penalties on the rise and ever-growing regulatory expectations, the next 12 months will be busy for compliance professionals working in Asia-Pacific institutions,” said ACAMS president and managing director Scott Liles. “That’s why we knew this year’s conference needed to place a special emphasis on cutting-edge topics, such as new technological innovations, while offering sessions for non-bank financial institutions and the Designated Non-Financial Businsess and Professions, such as insurance companies, casinos and professional service providers.”

“Whether you’re from a major bank seeking to detect COVID-19 procurement fraud or from an insurance firm that wants to mitigate its exposure to evolving sanctions and proliferation financing risks, we have an unparalleled line-up of sessions and expert speakers ready to offer practical compliance advice and answer your questions,” he said. 

In addition to keynote addresses from the Deputy Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Assistant Managing Director overseeing financial crime at the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the conference will feature financial-crime experts from Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) of the Philippines, Standard Chartered Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Deutsch Bank, ANZ, Bank Julius Bär, SMBC, PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia, Bank Mandiri, MUFG Bank, RCBC, AIA, Sands China Ltd, Deloitte, British Consulate-General Hong Kong, Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and WWF-Hong Kong, among other organizations.
