The Asian Bankers Association (ABA) and Fintelekt Advisory Services, an official ABA Knowledge Partner, wish to invite fellow bank members and friends to join a virtual workshop on Effectively Managing the Compliance Function on 7 May 2024 from 2PM to 4PM Singapore Time.

This virtual workshop will examine the multi-faceted role of the compliance function and what is required for it to be a success. Our expert trainer, Gail Wessels, will refer to practical examples and case studies to bring the content to life, encourage reflection and discussion amongst participants across the following key issues:



  • What is the scope of the compliance function?
  • What is the overlap with areas such as governance, risk and sustainability?
  • Why is the positioning of compliance within the organisation fundamental to its success?
  • What is the purpose and value of compliance?
  • What are the key elements of an effective compliance programme?
  • Who bears responsibility and accountability for compliance?



The programme is relevant for staff from the AML Compliance, Regulatory Compliance, Financial Crime, Audit, Legal, Strategy, and Corporate Governance teams.
