Anti-Money Laundering

The fight against money laundering is firmly at the centre of the collective efforts towards safeguarding the integrity and stability of the financial system and to enhance the reputation of the wider jurisdiction. Moreover, ignoring AML exposes organisations to significant financial and operational risks, making compliance a fundamental component of responsible and sustainable business practices.

Strong compliance procedures ensure that entities have robust processes for customer due diligence, transaction monitoring and reporting suspicious activities to relevant authorities.

Failure to adhere to AML regulations, which continue to evolve in line with new threats, can result in severe legal and reputational consequences, including substantial fines and damage to the institution’s trustworthiness.

Staying abreast with the latest AML developments is not only a legal requirement but also a vital component of responsible business practices.

Join us at the upcoming MIA AML Conference 2024, organised in collaboration with the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU), where industry experts and thought leaders will converge to discuss the latest developments, best practices, and emerging trends in the dynamic landscape of Anti-Money Laundering. Amongst others, this year’s event will focus on Malta’s National Risk Assessment as well as the AML Package and the new EU AML Authority.

Do not miss this opportunity to network with professionals in the field and gain valuable knowledge in AML procedures, with exclusive insights from case-law on the matter.
