Beyond Regulatory Compliance –
Are your Risk-Based Controls Combatting
Money Laundering & Terrorist Financing Threats?

With businesses facing varying levels of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risks due to differing activities, customers, and geographic reach, companies are moving away from tick-box compliance and adopting a risk-based approach where prevention controls are commensurate with the ML/TF risks identified. But with a lack of clear guidelines on risk assessments, how can businesses effectively rate risks and set the appropriate tolerance? How can resources be efficiently allocated towards high-risk areas? What are the key measures needed for a comprehensive AML/CFT programme in ensuring regulatory compliance?

Hear Case Studies & Expert Insights on
ML/TF Risk Assessments & Mitigation Measures

Led by the AML lead of Deloitte Singapore, join this 1-day practical workshop to acquire proactive, risk-based strategies to maximise your AML/CFT programme effectiveness. Hear insider information on regulators’ expectations on the identification of critical customer, product and geographic risks. Through best practice sharing, learn how companies interpret guidelines on assessing financial crime risks with proper scoring and risk rating. Gain insights from real life observations on how firms identify gaps in current AML/CFT policies, procedures, processes. Examine grey areas in carrying out Know Your Customer (KYC), sanctions screening and transactions monitoring to avoid compliance pitfalls.
