Anti-Money Laundering & Financial Crime Southern Africa Conference
September 6 @ 7:30 am - September 7 @ 4:40 pm
Despite the rigid AML regulations being enforced in all corners of the world, money laundering and terror financing continue to be a problem, with global FinCrime numbers are soaring sky high. The 8th instalment of the annual AML & Financial Crime Southern Africa Conference takes place against the background of the recent grey listing of both South Africa and Nigeria. After Turkey, South Africa is the second G20 economy to have been added to the grey list, while they join 18 countries on the grey list and 2 on the black list. This year’s two day conference will look at the effects of the grey listing and will dissect the technical compliance factors that were mentioned in the FAFT report that needs serous attention. We will once again focus on all the important issues facing southern African countries when it comes to money laundering activities, including focusing on issues affecting the recent listing – insufficient due diligence, lack of training and staffing, facilitating AML/CTF investigations, improving risk based assessments, fraud, corruption and illicit money flows. And properly implementing new technologies. This annual gathering is TCI’s flagship conference, and has received rave reviews from delegates, speakers and sponsors over the past few years. It is the biggest and most popular conference on AML in southern Africa.
“Last year we set a new record of over 240 people attending. All in all more than 1 000 delegates attended the event since the first conference in 2015.”
