Half-day workshop on AML

On 23 March, the MBA organised a webinar on Anti-money Laundering (AML) for senior Compliance professionals. The MBA was grateful to host Ms. Yotsna Lalji Venketasawmy, CEO of Konformitas Conulting, and Mr. Guillaume Ollivry, former director of the Financial Intelligence Unit, to share their experience and perspectives with members. Topics covered by their presentations included the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) process, the role and responsibilities of the private sector with regards to the FATF Outcome 4 (preventative measures), best practices around Suspicious Transaction Report (STR) filing for the banking sector, and the lessons learned from the ESAAMLG Mutual Evaluation. The training event was part of the MBA’s ongoing commitment to ensure its members adhere to the highest standards in relation to Financial Crime Compliance.
