CHICAGO, Oct. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As part of its ongoing effort to empower compliance professionals throughout Canada, ACAMS will host a one-of-a-kind, fully virtual training and networking event for its 9th Annual AML & Anti-Financial Crime Conference. Beginning on November 3, attendees of this fully virtual gathering will have the opportunity to engage with their counterparts in Canada’s public and private sectors to discuss the latest regulatory developments for anti-financial crime (AFC) practitioners and learn compliance best practices for identifying and reporting money flows tied to organized transnational crime groups, ransomware syndicates, violent domestic extremists, and other illicit actors.
As reflected by the theme of this year’s event — "managing financial crime risks from to sea to sea” — the ACAMS Canada Virtual Conference offers a holistic look at pending regulatory requirements and emerging criminal typologies facing Canadian compliance professionals, with insight from high-level expert speakers from Finance Canada, FINTRAC, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Transparency International Canada, and many of the nation’s largest banks, FinTech firms and consultancy firms.
“Advances in technology and global events such as the COVID-19 pandemic are changing the illicit-finance threat landscape in Canada and the ability of Canadian compliance practitioners to mitigate their related regulatory risks,” said ACAMS President and Managing Director, Scott Liles. “By drawing upon the expertise of the country’s most seasoned financial-crime experts, ACAMS Canada offers a good opportunity for compliance practitioners to get ahead of the regulatory curve.”
“Whether you’re looking for insight on how recent amendments to the PCMLTFA will impact compliance for virtual currency and prepaid card providers, seeking guidance on risk mitigation in the rapidly growing digital banking market, or taking steps to meet money-laundering risks linked to Canada’s real estate and gaming sectors, this event is designed to give attendees practical compliance knowledge that can be implemented to protect their institutions from regulatory penalties and reputational damage,” said Liles.
