The Asian Bankers Association (ABA) would like to invite members and friends to participate in the free webinar on “New Payment Systems and Inherent AML Risks” to be held on December 4, 2019 from 11.00 am to 12.00 am Indian standard time.
To be conducted by Fintelekt Advisory Services, the webinar aims to provide the participants the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the risky trade environment affecting bank transactions. According to WTO, US$19.48 trillion were traded around the world in 2018 and Asia traded 30% of that total. However, according to Global Financial Integrity, from 2005-2014, the illicit financial flows (IFF) likely accounted for between 14.1% and 24% of the total developing country trade.
The webinar – the fourth to be jointly conducted by ABA and Fintelekt Advisory Services this year – will address the following key issues:
- Changing face of payment systems – understanding the latest trends and developments
- Evolving challenges for the banking sector
- Regulatory ambiguities and the need for a better framework
- Mitigating the AML risks from new payment systems
The webinar session will be led by two prominent experts:
Russell Wilson, Special Counsel, Maddocks and Non-executive Director – Transparency International Australia
M. Eftakharul Alam Bhuiya, Head of Legal & Compliance and Company Secretary, Nagad, Bangladesh
Ms. Arpita Bedekar, Director – Marketing, Fintelekt Advisory Services
The webinar follows the successful first, second and third webinars held on February 21, May 8, and July 10 , respectively, as part of the 2019 AML/CFT webinar series jointly organized by the ABA and Fintelekt Advisory Services.
All the webinars have been drawing over 250 participants per session among ABA members and non-members banks from countries all over the Asia-Pacific region.
We expect that this upcoming webinar will also draw a large international audience because it offers a convenient learning opportunity for AML compliance officers from the banking industry in Asia.
We encourage you to share this invitation with other relevant departments in your organization as well.
Please register HERE before December 3, 2019.
Registered participants who answer the optional test by December 13 will receive a Certificate of participation.
