Fintelekt AML/CFT 11th Annual Summit (India) 2022

May 10, 2022

Tuesday, 10th May 2022
9.30 am to 5.00 pm Indian Standard Time
Courtyard Marriott, Mumbai International Airport, India

Fintelekt hosted its AML/CFT 11th Annual Summit (India) 2022 on May 10, 2022 after a pandemic-induced hiatus of two years. The Summit provided an opportunity for in-person interaction around AML/CFT in line with our mission of ‘uniting stakeholders towards a stronger AML/CFT regime’.

It is arguably a testing time in India’s AML history, with the looming FATF mutual evaluation after more than a decade. The agenda for the day provided ample scope for strategic dialogue and discussion towards appraising the performance of AML/CFT controls, identifying areas for improvement, and ensuring a longer-term focus on strengthening the AML regime in the country.
