While Sri Lanka has made a high-level political commitment to address strategic AML/CFT deficiencies identified by FATF, a lot of effort is required from the AML community to strengthen the country’s AML regime.

Fintelekt Advisory Services organised its 4th annual AML Summit in Sri Lanka to provide an exclusive platform for the banking and financial services industry to have a dialogue to highlight the priorities, deliberate on the corrective measures required and share global best practices on improving AML standards in the country.
