Event Overview

The European Union’s 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive has been recently enacted into Maltese legislation. The Directive includes some fundamental changes to the anti-money laundering procedures, including changes to customer due diligence, a central register for beneficial owners, a focus on the risk based procedure and other changes. In light of these changes, the Malta Institute of Accountants (MIA) will be hosting an Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Conference on the 20th February 2018, at Xara Lodge L/O Rabat.

The MIA AML Conference will be bringing together leading experts to provide the latest information on the current anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing developments and requirements. Sessions and a panel discussion will give first-hand knowledge discussing topics such as changes brought about by the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive, the upcoming Moneyval inspection, the Beneficial Ownership Register, and the interaction of GDPR and Blockchain on AML.

Registration will start at 08:30 with welcome refreshments, followed by an introduction to the day. Sessions and a panel discussion will give first-hand knowledge on key topics. Throughout the day, three breaks and a lunch will be served to participating delegates.
