AML & Financial Crimes Congress 2020

Grand Hyatt Melbourne, 123 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3000

This year’s underlying theme is all about raising the standards and finessing an organisation’s AML and financial crime frameworks or practices. There are the perennial issues like undertaking better risk assessments across all the elements in regard to AML risks, implementing updates and changes in a more timely manner, using technology and data better, improving SMRs, and other reporting, getting more value from your AUSTRAC reporting and understanding ‘feedback’ (the variety of notices and advice) from AUSTRAC and what you need to do with it.

This one-day event is an opportunity for risk and compliance professionals to receive industry updates, measure different perspectives in the financial crime space, learn about merging career trends, hear from regulators, assess the impact of emerging technologies such as Fintech and RegTech, and network with like-minded professionals.
