In the last few years, Singapore has witnessed an increased focus on Anti-Money Laundering, and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (“AML/CFT”) by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (“MAS”). There were revisions in the AML regulations and increased inspections covering AML/CFT at Financial Institutions.

As prescribed by the MAS, staff are required to undergo periodic AML/CFT training. This session is designed to provide staff with up to date requirements under MAS Notice SFA04-N02 and its Guidelines.

Relevant to Capital Markets Services Licence holders, and Registered Fund Management Companies (“CMSL holders/RFMCs”), this session will cover recent revisions and also present MAS’ Circular on key findings following recent inspections.

The session will be facilitated by Gary Chia, Head of Financial Services Regulatory and Compliance, and Shahid Zaheer, Director, Financial Services Regulatory Compliance, both from KPMG in Singapore, and supported by AML/CFT and regulatory experts.
