Back to basics: AML

Event Details


United Kingdom | July 03, 2019

Like death and taxes, anti-money laundering compliance will always be with us. Tackling financial crime and money laundering remains one of the FCA’s most important priorities. In December 2018, the FCA fined a former CEO of a bank for acting without due skill, care and diligence and for being knowingly concerned in a breach by his bank of its obligations to maintain effective anti-money laundering systems. The FCA’s decision was a sobering warning to all senior management figures that they must take an active role in their firm’s anti-money laundering policies and procedures.

  • The changes under the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive
  • High risk customers including politically exposed persons
  • Key themes arising from FCA anti-money laundering enforcement action
