BAFT is pleased to offer its newest workshop series for transaction bankers and their compliance and risk officers. The BAFT Financial Crime Compliance Workshop - North America, held in conjunction with the Global Annual Meeting-the Americas, is an all-day deeper dive training covering important regulatory requirements and developments in combating financial crime, with emphasis on governance and accountability. The workshop will explore differences in approaches for regional and global banks.

This workshop is led by an anti-money laundering expert, Alma Angotti, who has held senior enforcement positions at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority).

In addition to North America, the Financial Crime Compliance Workshop will be offered in London, UK and Mumbai, India. Watch out for additional cities to be added to this roadshow.

Learning Objectives

  1. Bankers and compliance personnel will understand the international standards and U.S. regulatory requirements for customer identification and due diligence and the responsibility of the “first line of defense” to identify and mitigate customer risk, particularly in correspondent banking relationships.
  2. Describe current international standards (FATF) and supervisory expectations (BCBS) for correspondent banking and how correspondents and respondents can meet those expectations in an efficient and cost effective way.
  3. Explain recent regulatory developments in governance and optimization of transaction monitoring systems for both AML/CFT and sanctions compliance.
  4. Learn the evolution of economic sanctions programs, which have become more complex over time, and offer strategies to protect against inadvertent and deliberate evasions of sanctions regime requirements.
Bonus: Attendees of the Financial Crime Compliance Workshop – North America are eligible to attend the Wednesday sessions during the Global Annual Meeting – The Americas. The sessions include regulatory update, trade based money laundering and cybersecurity.
