Media Alert: AML and Financial Crimes Congress 2016

Congress to be held at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth Hotel on April 28, 2016

SYDNEY, Australia – April 22, 2016 – The GRC Institute today announced registration will be closing soon for the 2nd AML and Financial Crimes Congress 2016 sponsored by Thomson Reuters at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth Hotel on April 28, 2016.

This year’s congress is covering the breadth of the financial crimes landscape; featuring keynotes from industry leaders highlighting the emerging trends, best practices and developments in anti-money laundering and financial crime.

“Financial crime is becoming an increasingly complex and sophisticated activity, involving multiple fronts and threats. Those intent on engaging in fraud, corruption, money laundering and other illegal activities are actively targeting financial institutions with weaknesses in their AML and FC frameworks as conduits for their activities. In addition to these inherent risks there are heavy penalties for any inadvertent involvement,” said Naomi Burley, Managing Director, GRC Institute.

“With organisation’s facing greater risks and challenges to achieving and maintaining compliance, the congress will provide valuable guidance and insight for practitioners into how they can implement or improve standards to combat financial crime,” said Burley.
