Anti-Money Laundering Summit (Philippines) 2018

August 30, 2018
8.30 am to 3.30 pm
Hotel Peninsula Manila, Makati, Manila

Banks and financial institutions across the globe are under tremendous pressure to continuously improve their AML compliance functions and to keep up-to-date with international standards, especially with the constant threat of de-risking and loss of correspondent banking relationships, as well as getting listed on non-co-operation lists. It has become imperative for AML compliance officers to obtain continuous training and exposure to global trends and best practices, as well as ensure industry-level co-operation for knowledge sharing. Under this backdrop, Fintelekt is organising its first AML Summit in the Philippines to provide a forum for AML compliance officers to come together and discuss issues of common interest.

AML Compliance in South Asia - A Reality Check

South Asia’s economy was expected to grow at 7 per cent in 2017, increasing to 7.2 per cent in 2018, as per World Bank’s South Asia Economic Focus 2017 report. The major contributors to growth are expected to be strong foreign direct investment and increasing domestic as well as foreign demand for goods. However, the relative performance of the South Asian region on global indices relating to the ease of doing business, corruption and bribery, and anti-money laundering continues to be poor, undermining the growth potential of the region.  Download now
