KPMG Forensic hosted a seminar on Wednesday 4 May, 2016 on the changing face of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) at George Town Yacht Club.
Joel Dodson, Partner in the Risk Consulting practice, who lead the seminar, is noted as stating “the number of acceptances is indicative of the focus placed by businesses on regulatory change and the importance of keeping pace with the changing landscape.”
Joel opened the seminar and led the panel discussion which featured Jude Scott, Chief Executive Officer of Cayman Finance, Judiann Myles, Deputy Head of Policy and Development at the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) and Sandra Edun-Watler, President of the Cayman Islands Compliance Association (CICA).
Their discussion focused on the regulatory headwinds facing the Cayman financial market specifically, the upcoming inspection in the second quarter of 2017 by the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) and the work being done ahead of this. Joel stated “that the regulatory landscape is evolving at a rapid pace and organizations and businesses today need to be diligent in their upkeep of internal policies and procedures to account for the evolutions.”
Alice Adumekwe and Brid Verling of the KPMG Risk Consulting team presented further on the revised FATF recommendations and the key requirement in having a robust AML program.
