Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Uncovered

Current sanctions and AML activity and the enforcement by regulators of these regimes are at unprecedented levels, exposing businesses to significant regulatory risk.

The repercussions of non-compliance are well-known, but ambiguous and continuously evolving sanctions and AML regimes leave financial institutions and responsible officers facing the immense challenge of implementing fully comprehensive programmes.

A thought provoking series of events hosted by CounterpartyLink, RDC and Kemp Little LLP comes to Amsterdam for leading institutions in the Benelux region, focusing on:

  • Global sanctions and anti-money laundering requirements imposed by international and national governmental and regulatory authorities
  • Strategies for financial institutions for aligning operations to meet these enhanced compliance needs
  • Driving efficiency in compliance without compromising on effectiveness and protection

Join us for this informative, discussion-led seminar followed by an exquisite networking lunch.

Please contact Magalie Pimentel if you have any queries.
