Financial crime outlook series

Publication April 2019

An increasingly globalised business environment, coupled with a growth in technology, continues to increase the risk of financial crime for all institutions.   With this in mind,  our Regulatory Compliance Consulting team have identified what they see as the key financial crime threats and issues that should be of focus for Heads of Financial Crime, Money Laundering Reporting Officers, Compliance Officers and members of management. Some of these are emerging themes, whilst others are more traditional areas where we continue to see issues in control and risk management.  

Our financial crime outlook series will explore each of these themes in more detail, providing both global perspectives and regional insights. If you would like to receive updates, please register.
