regulators under much tighter scrutiny.

means more headaches for you...

With recent fines and penalties running in the tens of
millions—making sure you are compliant has never been
more essential. Protect your organization—and your career.

  • Are you prepared if regulators walk through your office door unannounced today?

  • Are you aware of good compliance strategies that will help you and your organization avoid hefty fines, bad publicity or even criminal prosecution?
  • Are you familiar with the investigative techniques you should follow to unmask the true beneficial owners?

Dear Anti-Money Laundering Professional,

Imagine having more than 50 of the world’s top experts guide you through:

  1. Today’s most dangerous money laundering landmines.

  2. The best practices in AML compliance, supervision and law enforcement.

It’s information that’s never been more important or vital especially in light of recent events...

In the past two years, BankAtlantic agreed to pay a $10 Million U.S. Justice Department forfeiture and was forced to conduct an extremely expensive “look-back.”

ABN AMRO paid a total of $80 Million to state and federal authorities for violations of various regulations, and poor controls of correspondent accounts that let Russian shell companies move money.

Israel Discount Bank of New York paid a total of $37 Million to state and federal authorities also for correspondent account compliance deficiencies.

And the list is not limited to banks…

Western Union has shelled out a total of $19 Million in penalties for state and federal AML violations in the past three years.

And Oppenheimer & Co., the first Wall Street securities firm to be penalized for a Bank Secrecy Act violation, paid $2.8 Million for not having adequate AML training and staff among other infractions.

These are just a few illustrations of stepped-up enforcement by U.S. regulators, most of which were aimed at non-United States institutions. These are among the enforcement actions that our expert panelists will dissect at this year’s conference—giving you the opportunity to learn from others’ mistakes and avoid similar fines, penalties and forfeitures for your institution wherever you are located.

And that is only one example of what you’ll take away from the information-packed sessions offered to you when you register for this year’s conference.

You’ll also learn…

Imagine having access to the world’s top money laundering experts offering you timely information along with tips and strategies you can use from the moment you return to the office—plus wonderful materials you can take away, such as an interactive CD-ROM and Conference Book, as your own reference guide.

Those are some of the many reasons that last year more than 1,500 of your anti-money laundering colleagues from the United States, Cayman Islands, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, France, the Bahamas, Switzerland and many other countries from around the world registered and attended this exciting conference.
