Anti-Money Laundering Summit (Philippines) 2018

Date to be announced soon
8.30 am to 4.00 pm

Manila, Philippines

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.
