Event Overview

Tackling financial crime is increasingly becoming a bigger priority throughout the European political spectrum. In order to keep touch with the times, legislation keeps evolving, particularly in the areas of tax fraud, evasion and avoidance, and to bring transparency to the financial dealings of individuals and entities. Regulatory compliance is an important priority for firms and a strict AML regime is crucial to the integrity of the financial system and facilitates a successful financial environment in which we all work. This seminar is intended to present the latest developments of the EU Anti-Money Laundering and Combating of Terrorist Financing regime, in particular the changes brought about by the 4th EU AML Directive and what is in store with the transposition of the 5th EU AML Directive.

As a further development on the preceding instruments, this Directive aims to tighten the obligations placed on firms under the existing rules, includes emphasis on beneficial ownership registers and places greater emphasis on sanctions for breaches, amongst other changes. We set out to discuss and understand some of the key changes which could affect the way we deal with money laundering risks.
