In recent years there has been increased public interest in and support for the prevention of financial crime. Accordingly, regulators have been tightening standards and there is enhanced focus on boards and the appropriate oversight of their organisation's Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) compliance frameworks.

It is critical that boards fully understand their company's AML/CFT risks and how those risks are being mitigated – directors need to know if there are concerns with their AML/CFT compliance frameworks or if all is operating as it should be.

This session will be designed to ensure it covers the latest regulatory requirements and your specific needs.

The session will also cover the latest trends in AML and CTF in the context of :

  • national and regional initiatives, laws and regulations – a high-level review of UAE initiatives to combat money laundering and terrorist financing
  • an overview of, and an update on, applicable laws and regulations, your requirements, and the legal provisions for AML and CTF directly relevant to the board of directors; and
  • an update on the risks and penalties for the board of directors and companies in UAE

The session will assume a good knowledge of AML and CTF and will focus on the latest trends and developments in this area, particularly within the UAE.
