Anti-money laundering (AML): Trends and challenges in a digitalized world
Audit, Tax and Advisory firm, KPMG in Bahrain, is hosting a seminar to shed light on the impact of money laundering related risks. The half-day event will take place on Wednesday 7 March 2018, at the Downtown Rotana Hotel under the theme “Anti-money laundering (AML): Trends and challenges in a digitalized world”.
Jeyapriya Partiban, Partner and Head of Risk Consulting at KPMG in Bahrain, commented on the upcoming event that: “Money laundering is the process whereby criminals attempt to conceal the origin and ownership of proceeds generated from criminal activities. Rapid changes in technology are making financial crimes more sophisticated than ever and, if undetected, laundered cash can have a devastating impact on society and the overall economy. Financial institutions play a key role in detecting and combating money laundering by complying with the global and local AML regulatory frameworks and this event aims to support them in their efforts.”
The event is an ideal platform for senior executives, compliance officers and internal audit professionals from organizations across the Kingdom of Bahrain to learn from KPMG’s Risk and Compliance experts about the impact of digital technologies on financial crimes. The event will also cover how banks and financial institutions can develop a tailored AML program to mitigate risks associated with money laundering activities.
The half-day seminar will feature a keynote presentation from Katerina Pagonim, Head of AML in the Forensic practice at KPMG UAE. Drawing on her 25+ years of experience, Katerina will explore industry best practices and KPMG’s methodology in approaching AML in today’s digitalized world.
