Banking Circle and The Paypers present a webinar that examines how organisations should re-equip themselves to combat money laundering in the digital era.

A successful AML strategy for the digital era is not just about regulatory compliance, nor should it be limited to the compliance function. Now and in the future, fighting money laundering means having the right technologies in place, optimal organisation design, high-quality data captured from a wide range of sources, and the widest possible collaborative approach – involving national and international regulators as well as external partners and clients.

Moderated by Mélisande Mual, Managing Director at The Paypers, this webinar will examine the following issues:
  • Should responsibility for AML be limited to the compliance team?
  • What processes can be improved across your organisation to combat AML?
  • How can departments work together more effectively to fight money laundering?
  • How does AML fit with the broader context of digital transformation?
  • Can AML be shaped to enhance business growth, rather than seen as a block?
